Another thing that you can do with text is to rotate and indent. Rotating text is as easy as selecting it, let's go back to our Format Cells dialog box, and here in the Orientation panel, you can see that your Text orientation can go from 0 degrees all the way up to 90 and all the way down to -90. Let's try it at 90 degrees and see what we get. There we go. All of our titles are going straight up and down. That might work really well for you if you have a very narrow column of data and a lengthy title to describe it, or I think it would be more aesthetically pleasing, Format Cells maybe at 45. There we go. Let's leave our titles at 45 degrees. If you have any text within your document, whether it be paragraph text or just a simple piece of text and you want to indent your text, you'll find the Indent command in the Formatting toolbar.
Here we go. There's Increase and Decrease the indent, increase, or you can find that in the Format Cells dialog box. Right now we have an indent level of 1. We can increase that level all the way up to 15. Let's undo that indent of 15, and even the indent of 1. There we go, and those are just a few more options for enhancing your text inside of Microsoft Excel. I'm sure if you spend some time with the text dialog box in the Format Cells or even with your Formatting toolbar, you'll find lots and lots of things that you can do to really make your spreadsheet pop out.
