Setting Web Fonts in Excel

Setting web fonts in Excel can be a bit of a challenge, but with a little bit of knowledge and the right tools, it can be done relatively easily. There are a few different methods that can be used to set web fonts in Excel, and we'll go over each one briefly.

Method 1: Use the Fonts drop-down menu

The first method is to use the Fonts drop-down menu. To do this, simply open up the Excel file that you want to use web fonts in, and click on the "Fonts" drop-down menu. From here, you should see a list of all the available fonts. Simply select the font that you want to use, and then click on the "OK" button.

Method 2: Use the Font dialog box

The second method is to use the Font dialog box. To do this, open up the Excel file that you want to use web fonts in, and click on the "Format" menu. From here, select "Font." This will open up the Font dialog box. In the "Font" tab, simply select the font that you want to use from the list of available fonts.

Method 3: Use VBA

The third method is to use VBA. This is a bit more complicated than the first two methods, but it is still relatively easy to do. First, open up the Excel file that you want to use web fonts in. Then, press Alt+F11 to open up the Visual Basic Editor. In the editor, create a new module and paste in the following code:

Sub SetWebFonts() 
  Dim i As Integer 

  For i = 1 To ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count 

    With Cells(i, 1) 

      .Font.Name = "Your desired font goes here" 

    End With 

  Next i 
End Sub

Once you have pasted in this code, simply change "Your desired font goes here" to the name of the font that you want to use. Then, save your changes and close the Visual Basic Editor.

Method 4: Use an external CSS file

The fourth method is to use an external CSS file. This is probably the easiest method of all, but it does require a little bit of knowledge about CSS. First, create a new CSS file and save it somewhere on your computer (you can name it whatever you want). Then, open up your Excel file and click on the "View" menu. From here, select "Page Layout." This will bring up a new page layout view where you can add HTML elements.
