In Excel alignment is important to be able to easily read data. Learn to format text and tables in various ways in Excel.
Text control allows you to control the way Excel 2003 presents information in a cell. There are three types of text control: Wrapped Text, Shrink-to-Fit, and Merge Cells.
Wrapped Text wraps the contents of a cell across several lines if it's larger than the column width. It increases the height of the cell as well.
Shrink-to-Fit shrinks the text so it fits into the cell; the more text in the cell, the smaller it will appear in the cell.
Merge Cells can also be applied by using the Merge and Center button on the Standard toolbar.
