Creating a Header in Excel

Headers are a great way to keep your Excel spreadsheets organized and easy to read. You can use headers to label columns of data, or to identify the contents of a row. Creating a header is a simple process that only requires a few clicks.

First, open your Excel spreadsheet. Then, click on the cell where you want to create the header. In the example below, we'll click on cell A1.

Once you've clicked on the cell, type in the text that you want to use for the header. In this example, we'll type "Employee Name".

Once you've typed in the header text, you can format it however you like. To do this, select the header text and then use the formatting options in the toolbar at the top of the screen. For example, you can change the font size or color, or make the text bold or italic.

Once you've finished formatting your header, you can move on to entering data into the cells below it. When you're done, your spreadsheet should look something like this:
