Entering Text

To enter text in Microsoft Excel:

  1. Select the cell into which you wish to enter text by clicking on it.
  2. Begin typing.

Note that in addition to showing up in the cell, the text you are typing also shows up in the Formula Bar:Formula Bar

If you are entering a lot of text, it is sometimes easier to type directly into the formula bar. To do this, simply select the cell by clicking on it and then click in the Formula Bar and begin typing.

Expand Data across Columns

You can also easily expand data across columns by hovering the cursor over the lower-right corner of the cell and when it turns into a thin black cross, dragging. This will copy the data to multiple columns.
