What are some benefits of Formatting cells in Excel?

Microsoft Excel has several features that permit users to customize the way their data is displayed. And there is a solid reason for it: formatting cells can help bring attention to essential data or show the content more properly. By default, Excel uses the General format (no specific number format) for numbers.

The following are some of the benefits of Excel data formatting:

  • The data appears to be more presentable.
  • Data formatting saves a lot of time and effort.
  • With the help of the chart, we can analyze the data.
  • With the help of the formatting, we can highlight specific data such as profit or loss in business.
