Center text across multiple columns

You can make a worksheet more visually appealing and easier to read by centering text across multiple columns. Often you do this by merging and centering the merged cells, but it is not the only option.

This feature is most useful when you have text in a cell that you use as a label or title for a range. By centering the text across the range, it makes it easier to see that the label or title applies to the entire range.

To center text across multiple columns, do the following:

    1.    Select a range that consist the text and the cells across which you want to center this text.
