This short and pithy chapter explains how to dress a worksheet in its
Sunday best in case you want to print and present it to others. It explains
how to align numbers and text, insert rows and columns, and change the size
of rows and columns. You find out how to decorate a worksheet with colors
and borders as well as create and apply styles to make formatting tasks go
more quickly. Finally, this chapter describes everything you need to know
before you print a worksheet, including how to make it fit on one page and
repeat row labels and column names on all pages.
Laying Out a Worksheet
Especially if you intend to print your worksheet, you may as well dress it
in its Sunday best. And you can do a number of things to make worksheets
easier to read and understand. You can change character fonts. You can
draw borders around or shade important cells. You can also format the
numbers so that readers know, for example, whether they’re staring at
dollar figures or percentages. This part of Chapter 4 is dedicated to the
proposition that a worksheet doesn’t have to look drab and solemn.
