hey guys,

i'm quite familiar with Excel but i'm not sure how this is done = (

check out this attached file. "MEPS" is in range A1 and it seems as though it's merged across A to D. however when you click on it, we'll realise the following:

- there is no cell merger
- there is no space formatting
- there is no indent
- there are no spaces before the word "MEPS"

how is this effect done? thanks! = )

Use centre across selection.

Enter value in one cell. Select a number of cells in the row. Right click and select cell format. In alignment select centre across selection

the value "MEPS" is in A1
select the cells A1 to D1, then select Format Cells

go to Alignment tab, in the Horizontal drop down, select Canter across selection.
