When you work in Excel, you work with two types of formatting: value formatting and font formatting. In value formatting, you assign a particular number style to a cell (or cells ) that holds numeric data. You can assign a currency style, a percent style, or one of several other numeric styles to values.
Another formatting option available to you in Excel relates to different font attributes. For example, you can add bold or italic to the contents of a cell or cells. You can also change the font used for a range of cells or increase the font size.
Next, you take a look at numeric formatting, and then you look at how different font attributes are controlled in Excel.
