Selecting Multiple Cells

It may occasionally be necessary to select multiple cells within a spreadsheet. For example, if you want to apply formatting to a large area, it is easier to select the full range of cells that you want to format and then apply the formatting to all of them at once.

You can select multiple cells by tapping a cell within the range of cells you want to select and then dragging using the small circle indicators to tap and drag your finger until all desired cells are selected.


Avoid the Keyboard

You can’t select multiple cells if the keyboard is displayed onscreen. You must first hide the keyboard by pressing the phone’s Back button.

>>>Go Further: Selected Cells

You can perform various actions after you select a range of cells. Any time that you select a range of cells, Excel displays the Outline, Sort, Filter, and Auto Sum icons at the bottom of the screen. However, tapping the Menu icon makes several other options available.

Viewing Cell Text

Occasionally, a cell contains too much data to be able to read the cell’s full contents within the confines of the current column. In this situation, you can get Excel to show you the cell’s full contents. Follow these steps:

1. Tap and hold the cell you want to view.


2. Tap View Cell Text.
