Horizontal alignment selections:  General - Applies the default alignment. Text data is aligned at the left edge of the cell, and numbers, dates, and times are aligned at the right of the cell.  Left - Aligns contents at the left edge of the cell.  Center - Centers the contents of the cell.  Right - Aligns cell contents at the right edge of the cell.  Fill - Repeats the characters in the left-most cell in the selection across the selected range. All cells to be filled in the selected range must be empty. For example, you can create a border-like effect by typing a dash (-) or an asterisk (*) in a cell and then using this option to repeat the string of characters across a row.  Justify - Breaks the cell contents into multiple lines within the cell and adjusts the spacing between words so that all lines are as wide as the cell. Vertical Alignment: Select an option in the Vertical box to change the vertical alignment of cell contents. By default, Excel aligns text vertically on the bottom of a cell. Orientation: To change the orientation of a cell’s contents, select a cell or range and click and drag the red diamond next to the word Text to select the angle --OR-- Enter the number of degrees for realignment using the spin box. 1. Select the range of cells B8:G8. 2. From the Format menu, choose Cells. 3. Click on the Alignment tab. 4. Choose Center from the Horizontal list box. 5. Change the orientation to 45 degrees by dragging the red diamond to the next diamond above it, or type 45 in the degree box.

Visit... www.thecodexpert.com Information about Workbook Protection: The Protection panel of the Format Cells window will allow you to add various levels of protection to cells, sheets, or workbooks. By default, Excel will lock each cell so that other users cannot make changes to your data or formulas once you protect your Sheet or Workbook. If you wish to unlock a cell or range, click in the Locked box to turn off the feature. You can also choose to Hide formulas so that other users can only view the results of a formula, not the formula itself. Select the cell or range that contain the formulas you wish to hide, then click in the Hidden box. To protect a sheet or workbook, use the Tools menu and choose Protection. Then make your selection from the secondary menu.  Contents locks the cells on the sheet; no changes or deletions are allowed.  Objects prevents changes to charts or graphical objects.  Scenarios locks any scenarios you’ve created. The Password window assigns password protection to your document. Pick a word you won’t forget, then write it down and put it in a safe place. Once protected with a password, the sheet can’t be unprotected without it! For useful Documents like this and Lots of more Educational and Technological Stuff... Visit... www.thecodexpert.com
