B. Visual Formatting Tools: Many of these tools are similar to those found in Microsoft Word. You can use the formatting tools to change the font, size, and color of typed words, and make them bold, italicized, or underlined. It also has a couple spreadsheet_specific formatting options. You can choose which sides of the cell get additional borders, and their style and thickness. You can also change the highlight color of the entire cell. This is useful for creating visually_appealing borders or differentiating rows or columns on large sheets, or for highlighting a particular cell that you want to accentuate.
G. Row and Column Formatting Tools: The Insert drop_down menu puts cells, rows, or columns before or after a selected area on the sheet, and Delete removes them. The Format drop_down lets you change the height of rows and the width of columns. It also has options for hiding and unhiding certain sections.
There are cases where what you see in the Formula Bar is different than whats in the cell. For example, lets say A1 = 1 and A2 = 2. If you create a formula in A3 that equals A1 + A2, then the A3 cell in your worksheet would show “3,” but the Formula Bar would show “=A1+A2.” This is important when youre trying to move cells to other parts of your worksheet _ remember that the display “value” of a cell isnt necessarily what the cell contains.
