Figure 16-16:
Top: To create a
gradient, you need to pick
the two colors you
want to use to create
the blend, and you
need to choose the
way Excel does the
blending (from one
side to another, from
the top to the bottom,
and so on). When
applying a gradient
fill to a stack of cells,
a vertical fill makes
the most sense,
because that way the
gradients in each cell
line up and they look
like one seamless
shaded region. When
applying a gradient
fill to a row of cells,
a horizontal fill looks
better for the same
reason.
Bottom: A gradient fill
on cells A2 to A5.
1. Choose two
colors you want
to blend
2. Choose the
direction of
the shading
3. Choose which
color goes on
which side
