Excel 97 - justification

Excel 97 - justification

Excel 97 - justification

I've got a column of numbers. The data in the first few rows had two decimal places and I justified left. The data in the next few rows had more than two decimal places but I highlighted them and clicked on the "Decrease Decimal" button to bring them down to two dicimal places. I cannot left justify those cells!!! Can anyone help me understand why - and how to left justify them?

RE: Excel 97 - justification


I was able to do this very easily.

Try selecting the whole column by clicking on the top of the column, then click twice on 'left' justify icon.
