That the cell contains a string value entered by you or the result of a formula, you assign a style to data of this cell by defining what we call the format of the cell that determines how the value will be represented by the spreadsheet. To define the format of a cell, simply select the cell by clicking it, then choose Format menu> Cells and select the Number tab (or Numbers with Calc).Excel and Calc offer both options very similar. The main formats are classics Number, Percent, Currency, Date, Time, Scientific, Fraction, and text, but your spreadsheet can suggest others.
Each cell format (or style of data) often has sub-formats, also having its own characteristics. You're not limited to predefined formats: most spreadsheets allow you to create custom formats. It is possible to assign simultaneously the same style to multiple cells, contiguous or not. To do this, simply select the area, then apply the new format.
Just as the output of a formula is not the formula itself, the application of a data format can provide (and generally provides) a different view of the actual content of the cell. Again, only the formula bar shows the exact contents of a cell.
Enter eg literally "€ 243.00" in a cell, because this column this aspect may lead to the generation of an error if the column contains only numbers and is set to Currency format with currency symbol. If an amount is calculated on this column, the result is false because the seizure will be interpreted as text and not taken into account in the sum. It is wrong as often as difficult to find, nothing seems abnormal spreadsheet: a correct entry would be "243", "243.0" or "243.003".
Changing the row height and column width
With Excel, the cells of a new worksheet using default Standard format. Excel automatically adjusts the column width to display the numbers entered. Except for date formats and some custom sizes, if you apply a digital format to a given cell, such Monetary two decimal places Excel will expand the cell to adapt to the format selected by rounding decimals if necessary, that does not Calc.
If the width of the cell does not display a number based on the new format, it displays number signs (###). To see the value contained in the cell, you need to widen the column.
Enlargement of a column
Several methods are available:
Of course, you can use this solution on select multiple columns to expand simultaneously.
Increase line height
Place the mouse cursor in the column of line numbers on the line that separates the relevant line from the next. The pointer changes to an arrow (unless you have changed the appearance of the cursor) in a horizontal double-headed arrow marked with a vertical. Click and drag the divider line down, then release the mouse button. If the value does not appear, repeat. Note that you can make yourself up if necessary to reduce the height of a line.
You can also use this solution on a multiple selection of lines to simultaneously adjust their height.
Excel allows you to add a comment (sometimes called annotations) to a cell to provide additional information that we do not want (or that we can not) see in the spreadsheet.
To add a comment to a cell, select the cell or range of cells to nominate and select Insert-> Comment. You can also click on the cell with the mouse right button and choose Insert Comment.
After inserting a comment, a red triangle in the upper right indicates that the cell has a comment and prompts the user to fly into the cell with the mouse to see its content.
You can customize the format of this commentary, although the process is only poorly explained in the documentation:
You can now access a range of settings much richer, allowing in particular to choose the background color, size and color of text, lines, design automation, etc.. It is even possible to insert a picture, which can be very interesting for a list of names, a list of locations, an inventory of objects or parts .
Improved PivotTables:PivotTables are now easier to use! Key irtpovemenms include:1. Performance Enhancements. In Excel 2010, multi-threading helps speed up data retrieval, sorting, and filtering in PivotTables.2. PivotTable Labels. It is now possible to fill down labels in a PivotTable.3. You can also repeat labels in PivotTables to display item captions of nested fields in all rows and columns.
