You can use number formatting to control the appearance of numerical data in your worksheet. For
example, if you have a column of prices, you can format the data as numbers with dollar signs and
decimal points. If prices listed are in a currency other than dollars, you can indicate that as well.
Excel offers several different number categories, or styles, to choose from. These include Currency
styles, Accounting styles, Date styles, Time styles, Percentage styles, and more. You can apply
number formatting to single cells, ranges, columns, rows, or an entire worksheet.
