Formatting the Worksheet EX 125
To Change the Heights of Rows
When you increase the font size of a cell entry, such as the title in cell A1, Excel automatically increases the
row height to best fi t so it can display the characters properly. Recall that Excel did this earlier when multiple lines
were entered in a cell in row 3, and when the cell style of the worksheet title and subtitle was changed.
You also can increase or decrease the height of a row manually to improve the appearance of the worksheet.
The following steps show how to improve the appearance of the worksheet by decreasing the height of row 3 to
60.00 points, and increasing the height of row 14 to 26.25 points.
Point to the
boundary below row
heading 3.
Drag up until the
