Chapter 5. Formatting a Worksheet > Formatting Text and Numbers

Formatting Text and Numbers

You can change the appearance of the data in the cells of a worksheet without changing the actual value in the cell. You can format text and numbers with font attributes, such as bolding, italics, or underlining, to enhance data to catch the reader's attention. You can also apply numeric formats to numbers to better reflect the type of information they represent—dollar amounts, dates, decimals, and so on. For example, you can format a number to display up to 15 decimal places or none at all. If you don't see the number format you need, you can create a custom one.
