Why does the Currency style need to be reapplied to the range B25:H25?
Sometimes, the use of the format painter results in unintended outcomes. In this case, the
changing of the background i ll color and font color for the range B25:H25 resulted in the
loss of the Currency style because the format being copied did not included the Currency
style. Reapplying the Currency style to the range results in the proper number style, i ll color,
and font color.

The last step to improving the appearance of the worksheet is to format the
What-If Assumptions table in the range A1:B8. The specii cations in Figure 3 – 40 on page
EX 173 require an 8-point italic underlined font for the title in cell A1 and 8-point font in
the range A2:B8. The following steps format the What-If Assumptions table.
Press CTRL + HOME to select cell A1.
Click the Font Size button arrow (Home tab | Font group) and then click 8 in the Font Size
list to decrease the font size of the selected cell.
Click the Italic button (Home tab | Font Group) and then click the Underline button
(Home tab | Font group) to italicize and underline the text in the selected cell.
Select the range A2:B8, click the Font Size button arrow (Home tab | Font group) and
then click 8 in the Font Size list to apply a smaller font size to the selected range.
Select the range A1:B8 and then click the Fill Color button (Home tab | Font group) to
apply the most recently used background color to the selected range.
