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
