Formatting the Worksheet
Click the Accounting
Number Format
button (Home tab |
Number group) to
apply the Accounting
Number format to the
cells in the selected
Select cell A11
(Figure 1– 48).
Why did the column
widths automatically
adjust again?
Because the total
row contains larger
numbers, the
Accounting Number
format again causes
the cell widths
automatically to
adjust to accommodate the new formatting just as occurred in Step 2.

To Adjust the Column Width
The last step in formatting the worksheet is to adjust the width of column A so that the word Phone-a-thon
in cell A8 is shown in its entirety in the cell. Excel includes several methods for adjusting cell widths and row heights,
and these methods are discussed later in this topic. The following steps adjust the width of column A so that the
contents of cell A8 are displayed in the cell.
Point to the boundary
on the right side
of the column A
heading above
row 1 to change the
mouse pointer to a
split double arrow
(Figure 1– 49).
