Controlling Text Flow
Did You Know?
You can use the Format Cells dialog box to select other alignment
options. Many more alignment options are available from the Format
Cells dialog box, but for centering across columns and simple left, right,
and center alignment, it’s easier to use the Home or Format tab buttons.
Controlling Text Flow
The length of a label might not always fit within the width you’ve chosen for a column. If
the cell to the right is empty, text spills over into it, but if that cell contains data, the text
will be truncated (that is, cut off). A cell can be formatted so its text automatically wraps
to multiple lines or cell contents can also be shrinked to fit within the available space; that
way, you don’t have to widen the column to achieve an attractive effect. If the cell to the
right is empty, cell contents can be combined, or merged, with the contents of other cells.
Control the Flow of Text in a Cell
Select a cell or range whose text flow you want to change.
Click the Home tab.
To center cell contents across selected columns, click the Merge & Center
button arrow, and then click one of the options:
Merge & Center.
Merge Across.
Merge Cells.
Unmerge Cells.
