If you dont like the default font in which Excel displays your data, you can change it.
You can use cell formatting, including borders, alignment, and fill colors, to emphasize certain cells in your worksheets. This emphasis is particularly useful for making column and row labels stand out from the data.
Excel comes with a number of existing styles that let you change the appearance of individual cells.
If you want to apply the formatting from one cell to another cell, use the Format Painter to copy the format quickly.
There are quite a few AutoFormats you can apply to groups of cells. If you see one you like, use it and save yourself lots of formatting time.
Conditional formats let you set rules so that Excel will change the appearance of a cells contents based on its value.
Pay careful attention to how your worksheets appear when printed. Use header, footer, graphic, alignment, and margin settings to make your data look great on the page.
