    • 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.
  • 6.
    • 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).
  • 7.
    • Now, how to get the text in Cell A1 to appear centered 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 centered.
  • 8.
    • Now for the real power of spreadsheets - formulas!
    • In Column A (start at A2- A5) type in the following information:
      • Nokia, Samsung, LG, iPhone.
    • In Columns B2-B5, type in the following:
      • 16509, 26548, 36422, 10264
    • Format the data you have typed by making Column A right aligned.
    • Save your spreadsheet as mobiles.
  • 9.
    • We want to find out the totals for all the mobile phones.
    • In cell B6 type the following:
      • =(SUM) B2:B5
      • Press Enter
    • You should now have a total.
      • In cell A6 type Total.
    • Instead of typing the formula yourself, you can also click on 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.
