    • First we’ll look at how to enter and format text and numbers.
    • Click the mouse on the cell where you want data to appear, do the following:-
      • Click your mouse in Cell A1 and type “Mobile Phone – Most Popular Brands", then press the Enter key.
      • Notice that if a cell is not wide enough to hold the text you type, the text simply spills into the adjoining cells to the right.
    • To make text bold, click on Cell A1 again, then click the Bold icon at the top of the screen (same as word processing, right?).
    • Still on Cell A1 , increase its font size by clicking on the Font Size drop-down list (the example is set to 12 point).
    • Now, how to get the text in Cell A1 to appear centred between columns A to G?.
      • Simple - highlight cells A1 to G1 (click and hold the mouse button on A1 then drag to the right to D1)
      • Then click the Merge and Center button. Cells A1 through G1 are now merged (treated as if they were one cell) and the text is now centred.
    • Instead of typing the formula yourself, you can also the Autosum button.
    • This will automatically calculate the figures for you.
    • Delete the data in Cell B5 and use the autosum function instead.
    • Change the figures and see what happens.
