Rotating Text and Using the Fill Handle to Create a Series
When you rst enter text, its angle is zero degrees (0°), and it reads from left to right in a cell. Excel allows
you to rotate text in a cell counterclockwise by entering a number between 1° and 90°. Why? Rotating text is one
method of making column headings visually distinct.
The following steps enter the month name, April, in cell B3 and format cell B3 by rotating the text.
