As you work with Excel, you will probably develop preferred formats for data labels,
titles, and other worksheet elements. Instead of adding a format’s characteristics one
element at a time to the target cells, you can have Excel store the format and recall it
as needed. You can find the predeined formats by displaying the Home tab, and then
in the Styles group, clicking Cell Styles.
Clicking a style from the Cell Styles gallery applies the style to the selected cells,
but Excel also displays a live preview of a format when you point to it. If none of the
existing styles is what you want, you can create your own style by clicking New Cell
Style at the bottom of the gallery to display the Style dialog box. In the Style dialog
box, type the name of your new style in the Style Name field, and then click Format.
The Format Cells dialog box opens.
