Format in Excel 2016
Excel includes a variety of built-in formats that cover general, numeric, currency, percentage, exponential, date, time, and custom numeric formats. You can also design your own custom formats based on one of the built-in formats.
You can greatly reduce data-entry problems in your workbooks by making Excel check entries before entering them in specific cells. To do so, you need to define restrictions and data-validation rules for those cells.
Excel's ability to create automatic subtotals is a handy feature that can save you a great deal of time.
In addition to manual data filtering Excel enables fully automated filtering based on data from the specified range of cells. Before you can use the advanced filtering feature, you must set up a criteria range. A criteria range is a designated range on a worksheet that conforms to certain requirements.
On printing worksheet you might not be satisfied with the current pagination, so you might need to insert or remove manual page break.
Applying a number format to a cell doesn't change the value, but only how the value appears in the worksheet. Formatting can play a joke with you, e.g., sum of values seems incorrect because Excel displays a limited number of decimal places and their sum is not equal to the real sum.
In some cases you may want to sort your data in non-standard ways. For example, if your data consists of month names, you usually want it to appear in month order rather than alphabetically.
Headers and footers are widely used in the Microsoft Word document, but you should know that Excel has headers and footers too.
You can make your Excel spreadsheets more appealing by choosing graphics file to serve as a background for a spreadsheet similar to the wallpaper that you may display on your Windows desktop.
The Excel TEXT function enables you to specify numbers and date format.
