5 Move or scroll through a worksheet There are different ways to scroll through a worksheet. You can use the arrow keys, the scroll bars, or the mouse to move between cells and to move quickly to different areas of the worksheet. In Microsoft Office Excel 2007, you can take advantage of increased scroll speeds, easy scrolling to the end of ranges, and ScreenTips that let you know where you are in the worksheet. You can also use the mouse to scroll in dialog boxes that have drop-down lists with scroll bars. Use the scroll bars to move through a worksheet The following table describes different ways for using the scroll bars to move through a worksheet. To scroll One row up or down One column left or right One window up or down One window left or right A large distance Do this Click the scroll arrows or on the vertical scroll bar to move the sheet one row up or down. Click the scroll arrows or on the horizontal scroll bar to move the sheet one column to the left or right. Click above or below the scroll box on the vertical scroll bar. Click to the left or right of the scroll box on the horizontal scroll bar. Hold down SHIFT while dragging the scroll box. If you do not see the scroll bars, do the following to display them: 1) Click the Microsoft Office Button in the upper left corner of the application, and then click Excel Options in the lower right. 2) Click Advanced, and then under Display options for this workbook, make sure that the Show horizontal scroll bar and the Show vertical scroll bar check boxes are selected, and then click OK. Notes: When you use the scroll boxes to move through a worksheet, Excel displays a ScreenTip to indicate row numbers or column letters so that you know where you are in the worksheet. The size of a scroll box indicates the proportional amount of the used area of the sheet that is visible in the window. The position of a scroll box indicates the relative location of the visible area within the worksheet. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 5

10 Insert or delete cells, rows, and columns You can insert blank cells above or to the left of the active cell on a worksheet. When you insert blank cells, Excel shifts other cells in the same column down or cells in the same row to the right to accommodate the new cells. Similarly, you can insert rows above a selected row and columns to the left of a selected column. You can also delete cells, rows, and columns. Note: Microsoft Office Excel 2007 has more rows and columns than ever before, with the following new limits: 16,384 (A to XFD) columns wide by 1,048,576 rows tall. Insert blank cells on a worksheet 1) Select the cell or the range of cells where you want to insert the new blank cells. Select the same number of cells as you want to insert. For example, to insert five blank cells, you have to select five cells. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, click the arrow next to Insert, and then click Insert Cells. Tip: You can also right-click the selected cells and then click Insert. 3) In the Insert dialog box, click the direction in which you want to shift the surrounding cells. Notes: When you insert cells, rows, or columns on a worksheet, all references that are affected by the insertion adjust accordingly, whether they are relative or absolute cell references. The same behavior applies to deleting cells, except when a deleted cell is directly referenced by a formula. If you want references to adjust automatically, it's a good idea to use range references whenever appropriate in your formulas, instead of specifying individual cells. You can insert cells that contain data and formulas by copying or cutting the cells, right-clicking the location where you want to paste them, and then clicking Insert Copied Cells or Insert Cut Cells. Tips: To quickly repeat the action of inserting a cell, click the location where you want to insert the cell, and then press CTRL+Y. If there is formatting applied to the cells that you copied, you can use Insert Options how to set the formatting of the inserted cells. Tip: You can also right-click the selected rows and then click Insert. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 10 to choose Insert rows on a worksheet 1) Do one of the following: a) To insert a single row: Select either the whole row or a cell in the row above which you want to insert the new row. For example, to insert a new row above row 5, click a cell in row 5. b) To insert multiple rows: Select the rows above which you want to insert rows. Select the same number of rows as you want to insert. For example, to insert three new rows, you select three rows. c) To insert nonadjacent rows: Hold down CTRL while you select nonadjacent rows. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, click the arrow next to Insert, and then click Insert Sheet Rows.

11 Insert columns on a worksheet 1) Do one of the following: a) To insert a single column: Select the column or a cell in the column immediately to the right of where you want to insert the new column. For example, to insert a new column to the left of column B, click a cell in column B. b) To insert multiple columns: Select the columns immediately to the right of where you want to insert columns. Select the same number of columns as you want to insert. For example, to insert three new columns, you select three columns. c) To insert nonadjacent columns: Hold down CTRL while you select nonadjacent columns. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, click the arrow next to Insert, and then click Insert Sheet Columns. Tip: You can also right-click the selected cells and then click Insert. Delete cells, rows, or columns 1) Select the cells, rows, or columns that you want to delete. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, do one of the following: a) To delete selected cells: Click the arrow next to Delete, and then click Delete Cells. b) To delete selected rows: Click the arrow next to Delete, and then click Delete Sheet Rows. c) To delete selected columns: Click the arrow next to Delete, and then click Delete Sheet Columns. Tip: You can right-click a selection of cells, click Delete, and then click the option that you want. You can also right-click a selection of rows or columns and then click Delete. 3) If you are deleting a cell or a range of cells, in the Delete dialog box, click Shift cells left, Shift cells up, Entire row, or Entire column. a) If you are deleting rows or columns, other rows or columns automatically shift up or to the left. Tips: To quickly repeat deleting cells, rows, or columns, select the next cells, rows, or columns, and then press CTRL+Y. If needed, you can restore deleted data immediately after you delete it. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click Undo Delete, or press CTRL+Z. Notes: Pressing DELETE deletes the contents of the selected cells only, not the cells themselves. Excel keeps formulas up to date by adjusting references to the shifted cells to reflect their new locations. However, a formula that refers to a deleted cell displays the #REF! error value.

19 Reposition the data in a cell For the optimal display of the data on your worksheet, you may want to reposition the data within a cell. You can change the alignment of the cell contents, use indentation for better spacing, or display the data at a different angle by rotating it. 1) Select the cell or range of cells that contains the data that you want to reposition. 2) On the Home tab, in the Alignment group, do one or more of the following: a) To change the vertical alignment of cell contents: Click Top Align, Middle Align, or Bottom Align. b) To change the horizontal alignment of cell contents: Click Align Text Left, Center, or Align Text Right. c) To change the indentation of cell contents: Click Decrease Indent or Increase Indent. d) To rotate the cell contents: Click Orientation, and then select the rotation option that you want. e) To use additional text alignment options: Click the Dialog Box Launcher next to Alignment, and then on the Alignment tab of the Format Cells dialog box, select the options that you want. Use Merge and Center To center or align data that spans several columns or rows, such as column and row labels: 1) Select the range of cells you would like to center across. (In the example to the right, we would like our title centered across cells A1:I1) 2) Click Merge and Center to merge a selected range of cells. (Home tab/alignment group). The title after clicking the Merge and Center button. 3) You can then select the merged cell and reposition its cell contents as described earlier in this procedure Note: Microsoft Office Excel cannot rotate indented cells or cells that are formatted with the Center Across Selection or Fill alignment option in the Horizontal box (Format Cells dialog box, Alignment tab). If all of the selected cells have these conflicting alignment formats, the text rotation options under Orientation are not available. If the selection includes cells that are formatted with other, nonconflicting alignment options, the rotation options are available. However, cells that are formatted with a conflicting alignment format are not rotated. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 19

20 Using borders and color to emphasize data To distinguish between different types of information on a worksheet and to make a worksheet easier to scan, you can add borders around cells or ranges. For enhanced visibility and to draw attention to specific data, you can also shade the cells with a solid background color or a specific color pattern. If you want to add a colorful background to all of your worksheet data, you can also use a picture as a sheet background. However, a sheet background cannot be printed a background only enhances the onscreen display of your worksheet. By using predefined border styles, you can quickly add a border around cells or ranges of cells. If predefined cell borders do not meet your needs, you can create a custom border. Note: Cell borders that you apply appear on printed pages. If you do not use cell borders but want worksheet gridline borders to be visible on printed pages, you can display the gridlines. If you have trouble printing the cell shading that you applied in color, verify that print options are set correctly. Apply a predefined cell border 1) On a worksheet, select the cell or range of cells that you want to add a border to, change the border style on, or remove a border from. 2) On the Home tab, in the Font group, do one of the following: a) To apply a new or different border style: Click the arrow next to Borders, and then click a border style. b) To apply a custom border style or a diagonal border: Notes: Click More Borders. In the Format Cells dialog box, on the Border tab, under Line and Color, click the line style and color that you want. Under Presets and Border, click one or more buttons to indicate the border placement. Two diagonal border buttons are available under Border. The Borders button displays the most recently used border style. You can click the Borders button (not the arrow) to apply that style. If you apply a border to a selected cell, the border is also applied to adjacent cells that share a bordered cell boundary. For example, if you apply a box border to enclose the range B1:C5, the cells D1:D5 acquire a left border. If you apply two different types of borders to a shared cell boundary, the most recently applied border is displayed. A selected range of cells is formatted as a single block of cells. If you apply a right border to the range of cells B1:C5, the border is displayed only on the right edge of the cells C1:C5. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 20

21 Remove a cell border 1) On a worksheet, select the cell or range of cells that you want to remove a border from. 2) On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the arrow next to Borders, and then click No Border. Fill cells with solid colors 1) Select the cells that you want to apply shading to or remove shading from. 2) On the Home tab, in the Font group, do one of the following: a) To fill cells with a solid color: Click the arrow next to Fill Color in the Font group on the Home tab, and then click the color on the palette that you want. b) To apply the most recently selected color: Click Fill Color. Tip: If you want to use a different background color for the whole worksheet, click the Select All button before you click the color that you want to use. This will hide the gridlines, but you can improve worksheet readability by displaying cell borders around all cells. Tip: the keystroke for Select All is CTRL + A Fill cells with patterns 1) Select the cells that you want to fill with a pattern. 2) On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the Dialog Box Launcher next to Font. a) Keyboard shortcut: You can also press CTRL+SHIFT+F. 3) In the Format Cells dialog box, on the Fill tab, under Background Color, click the background color that you want to use. 4) Do one of the following: a) To use a pattern with two colors: Click another color in the Pattern Color box, and then click a pattern style in the Pattern Style box. b) To use a pattern with special effects: Click Fill Effects, and then click the options that you want on the Gradient tab. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 21

22 Verify print options to print cell shading in color If print options are set to Black and white or Draft quality either on purpose, or because the workbook contains large or complex worksheets and charts that caused draft mode to be turned on automatically cell shading cannot print in color. 1) On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click the Dialog Box Launcher next to Page Setup. 2) In the Page Layout dialog box, on the Sheet tab, under Print, make sure that the Black and white and Draft quality check boxes are cleared. Note: If you do not see colors in the worksheet, it may be that you are working in high contrast mode. If you do not see colors when you preview before you print, it may be that you do not have a color printer selected. Remove cell shading 1) Select the cells that contain a fill color or fill pattern. 2) On the Home tab, in the Font group, click the arrow next to Fill Color, and then click No Fill. Add a sheet background In Microsoft Office Excel, you can use a picture as a sheet background for display purposes only. A sheet background is not printed, and it is not retained in an individual worksheet or in an item that you save as a Web page. Important: Because a sheet background is not printed, it cannot be used as a watermark. You can, however, mimic a watermark by inserting a graphic in a header or footer. 1) Click the worksheet that you want to display with a sheet background. Make sure that only one worksheet is selected. 2) On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Background. 3) Select the picture that you want to use for the sheet background, and then click Insert. a) The selected picture is repeated to fill the sheet. Notes: To improve readability, you can hide cell gridlines and apply solid color shading to cells that contain data. A sheet background is saved with the worksheet data when you save the workbook. Tip: To use a solid color as a sheet background, you can apply cell shading to all cells. Remove a sheet background 1) Click the worksheet that is displayed with a sheet background. Make sure that only one worksheet is selected. 2) On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Delete Background. Note: Delete Background is available only when a worksheet has a sheet background. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 22

23 Formatting numbers By applying different number formats, you can change the appearance of a number without changing the number itself. A number format does not affect the actual cell value that Microsoft Office Excel uses to perform calculations. The actual value is displayed in the formula bar. The following table provides a summary of the number formats that are available on the Home tab in the Number group. To see all available number formats, click the Dialog Box Launcher next to Number. Available number formats Number Format General Number Currency Accounting Date Description The default number format that Excel applies when you type a number. For the most part, numbers that are formatted with the General format are displayed just the way you type them. However, if the cell is not wide enough to show the entire number, the General format rounds the numbers with decimals. The General number format also uses scientific (exponential) notation for large numbers (12 or more digits). Used for the general display of numbers. You can specify the number of decimal places that you want to use, whether you want to use a thousands separator, and how you want to display negative numbers. Used for general monetary values and displays the default currency symbol with numbers. You can specify the number of decimal places that you want to use, whether you want to use a thousands separator, and how you want to display negative numbers. Also used for monetary values, but it aligns the currency symbols and decimal points of numbers in a column. Displays date and time serial numbers as date values, according to the type and locale (location) that you specify. Date formats that begin with an asterisk (*) respond to changes in regional date and time settings that are specified in Control Panel. Formats without an asterisk are not affected by Control Panel settings. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 23

24 Number Format Time Description Displays date and time serial numbers as time values, according to the type and locale (location) that you specify. Time formats that begin with an asterisk (*) respond to changes in regional date and time settings that are specified in Control Panel. Formats without an asterisk are not affected by Control Panel settings. Percentage Multiplies the cell value by 100 and displays the result with a percent (%) symbol. You can specify the number of decimal places that you want to use. Fraction Scientific Text Special Custom Displays a number as a fraction, according to the type of fraction that you specify. Displays a number in exponential notation, replacing part of the number with E+n, where E (which stands for Exponent) multiplies the preceding number by 10 to the nth power. For example, a 2-decimal Scientific format displays as 1.23E+10, which is 1.23 times 10 to the 10th power. You can specify the number of decimal places that you want to use. Treats the content of a cell as text and displays the content exactly as you type it, even when you type numbers. Displays a number as a postal code (ZIP Code), phone number, or Social Security number. Allows you to modify a copy of an existing number format code. Use this format to create a custom number format that is added to the list of number format codes. You can add between 200 and 250 custom number formats, depending on the language version of Excel that is installed on your computer. Format numbers as text If you don't want a number to be treated as a value that can be calculated (for example, an item number), you can format the number as text. A number that is formatted as text is left-aligned instead of right-aligned and appears exactly as you typed it. It is stored as text and cannot be included in any calculation. 1) Select the cell or range of cells that contains the numbers that you want to format as text. Tip: You can also select empty cells, and then enter numbers after you format the cells as text. Those numbers will be formatted as text. 2) On the Home tab, in the Number group, click the arrow next to the Number Format box, and then click Text. Note: If you don't see the Text option, use the scroll bar to scroll to the end of the list. Tip: To use decimal places in numbers that are stored as text, you may need to include the decimal points when you type the numbers. How to Use Excel 2007 Training Session Handout Page 24

25 Copy an existing format to other cells If you have already formatted some cells on a worksheet the way that you want, you can simply copy the formatting to other cells or ranges. By using the Paste Special command (Home tab, Clipboard group, Paste button), you can paste only the formats of the copied data, but you can also use the Format Painter (Home tab, Clipboard group) to copy and paste formats to other cells or ranges. Also, data range formats are automatically extended to additional rows when you enter rows at the end of a data range that you have already formatted, and the formats appear in at least three of five preceding rows. The option to extend data range formats and formulas is on by default, but you can turn it on or off as needed (Microsoft Office Button, Excel Options, Advanced category). Use the Format Painter 1) Select the cell that contains the formatting you would like to copy. 2) Click the Format Painter (Home tab, Clipboard group) button. Note: If you click the button once, Excel applies the selected formatting to whatever cell you click on next, and then turns itself off. If you double click the Format Painter, the tool stays turned on so that you are able to apply the selected formatting to as many cells as needed. To turn off the Format Painter, either click the button again, or hit the ESC key. Change the column width and row height On a worksheet, you can specify a column width of 0 (zero) to 255. This value represents the number of characters that can be displayed in a cell that is formatted with the standard font. The default column width is 8.43 characters. If a column has a width of 0 (zero), the column is hidden. You can specify a row height of 0 (zero) to 409. This value represents the height measurement in points (1 point equals approximately 1/72 inch or cm). The default row height is points (approximately 1/6 inch or 0.4 cm). If a row has a height of 0 (zero), the row is hidden. Set a column to a specific width 1) Select the column or columns that you want to change. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, click Format. 3) Under Cell Size, click Column Width. 4) In the Column width box, type the value that you want. Change the column width to automatically fit the contents (auto fit) 1) Select the column or columns that you want to change. 2) On the Home tab, in the Cells group, click Format. 3) Under Cell Size, click AutoFit Column Width. Tip: To quickly autofit all columns on the worksheet, click the Select All button (or, CTRL +A) and then double-click any boundary between two column headings.
