I start talking about how through formatting you can start to create separation in the different areas of content that you have in your Microsoft Excel worksheet. I added background colors to really create separation.
Now I am going to add to this idea of creating separation based on our content. For example, I have got some totals down below from cell E8 down to E10, I have changed the background color and that really does help to add some separation between the totals and the row records up above. But I like to even make that more apparent. I am going to do this by adding a border, I am going to add a border just a single line at the top of that range of cells.
I want to add a border between my bill headings and my actual bills down below.
Once again just creating a sense of separation between the two different sets of content. So, first step I am going to highlight my totals (B10 to G10 column).
I will go up to my Home tab inside the Font section, I have got my border command. I am going to go into a little drop-down arrow here, I have got all these preset borders I can pick from bottom borders top borders left right borders.
And now, if I click away, I have got this nice horizontal line separating my totals from my records up above, and I am going to do the same thing with my headings (B5 to G5 column).
Then going to Home tab select Border command.
Another way to border cells it, now I want to add a border right separating my column total from the left-hand side. I highlight that cell Right click, select Format Cells.. command.
In Format Cells window, I select tab Border, then click to select Style of border, then click select border side for cells and click OK.
You can select color for border in Color box.
Make it stand out make it more accessible for our users. By adding your own borders, you are not only making it more presentable on screen but also when you go to print this.
Try it out, really, we are starting to make this thing look excellent at some borders in there to push it even further as far as your presentation is concerned at some borders.
