Excel spreadsheets can hold and process lots of data, but when you manage numerous
spreadsheets it can be hard to remember from a worksheet’s title exactly what data is
kept in that worksheet. Data labels give you and your colleagues information about data
in a worksheet, but it’s important to format the labels so that they stand out visually. To
make your data labels or any other data stand out, you can change the format of the
cells that hold your data.
