You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the workbook called:    Plain credit payments       from the folder shown above.

Make the following formatting changes:

  • Insert some extra rows at the top and type in the title
  • Format the font, size etc of the title
  • Change the row heights to space them out more
  • Change the vertical cell alignment of these rows to centred
  • Insert more rows between the titles and first row of data and before the totals
  • Format the "Cost" figures to show £ sign and no decimal places
  • Format the " Payment" figures to show the £ sign and 2 decimal places
  • Change the column widths
  • Line up the column titles with the numbers on the right
  • Add borders, gridlines and shading as desired!

Don't forget to use:   Format Cells...    Number     to add the £ sign right next to the numbers.
