Chapter 7. Format

Excel uses formatting to determine how the contents of a cell should display (i.e., bold, italics, font size, left justified, etc.). Besides specifying the look of cell contents, you can also indicate how numeric values should be handled by applying a number format to a cell. By default, all cells within a worksheet have General formatting. There are actually 12 different default number formats that can be applied to a cell and each one can be customized.

By default Excel left justifies the contents of a cell if it contains text and right-justifies the cell if it contains a number. You can modify this justification by changing the alignment of the cell using Format Cells Alignment or by selecting the corresponding icon on the toolbar.
