When it comes to using Microsoft‘s Excel Spreadsheet program there is no question that there are a variety of ways to accomplish many tasks. One of the things I like about Excel is the ability to format multiple columns at the same time giving them the same width. If you are unfamiliar with how this is done, read on and take a look at the steps I perform to achieve this task. You will see that it is very easy to do. The first thing you want to do, obviously, is open up Excel. Once Excel is displayed on your screen, go ahead and type in cell ”A1” the month name ”January”. In the cell ”B1” type in the month name, ”February”, in ”C1” type in ”March” and so on until you type in all twelve months each in their own cell on the spreadsheet.
When you write your formula, you will see that any x symbols show up in formula script. That means no extra formatting is required between typing the formula and publishing the completed work. This is ideal if you‘ve ever wanted to label a chart with its mathematical formula. The only caveat to add to all the above is that your freshly written equation will appear in a textbox. Textboxes are distinct from the main spreadsheet in that they have no cell address. This means they can be dragged across the sheet to your desired location. Obviously you don‘t want to have to move the formula every time you insert or delete rows from the underlying spreadsheet. Fortunately the default settings for such objects ensure that they retain their local position at all times.
