Why are the numbers
right-aligned?
When you enter
numeric data in a cell,
Excel recognizes the
values as numbers and
right-aligns the values
in order to properly
vertically align decimal
and integer values.
For example, values
entered below those
entered in this step
automatically will be right-aligned as well so that the decimals of the values properly align.
