Cell style options

When editing or creating cell styles, you can set several options, which are similar to those for directly formatting cells. A more detailed coverage of cell formatting is given in Chapter 2 (Entering, Editing, and Formatting Data). A brief summary is provided here.


On the Numbers tab, you can control the behavior of the data in a cell with this style. This includes specifying the type of data, the number of decimal places, and the language.


Use the Font tab to choose the font for the cell’s contents..

Font effects

The Font Effects tab offers more font options including underlining, strikethrough, and color.


Use the Alignment tab to set the horizontal and vertical alignment for the data in the cells, and rotate the text.


Use the Borders tab to set the borders for the cells, along with a shadow.


Use the Background tab to choose the background color for a cell.

Cell protection

Use the Cell Protection options to protect cells against certain types of editing.
