Basic formatting in Excel can customize the look and feel of your Excel spreadsheet. Learn about formatting cells in Excel here.
The currently selected cell in Excel is called the active cell. You can also select a group of adjacent cells, or a cell range. Many operations can be performed against a cell range, including moving, copying, deleting, and formatting. A cell range can be defined in different ways: Select a specific range of cells, select multiple columns or rows, or select the entire worksheet.
If the cells and columns you want to select are not directly next to one another, select one of the ranges you want to select and hold down the Control key while selecting other ranges.
