Merge Cells in Excel Web App

Merge Cells in Excel Web App

Joining cells together to create a single larger cell is one of the most frequently-used formatting options. You have no doubt seen column headings that stretch across multiple columns. A series of vertical cells can be joined to span across rows, and a series of horizontal cells can be joined to span across columns.

Naturally, Excel users want to be able to merge/join cells together in the Web App, and with the most recent enhancements, they can! The steps are essentially the same in both apps: select the cells that you want to merge, and then click the Merge & Center button on the toolbar. If you click the down arrow next to the button, you’ll open a drop-down list of four options (see Figure 4).

In the Web App, there is simply a Merge & Center button on the toolbar; only the full-blown Excel app has the options to merge and center, merge across, merge, and undo the merge.
