When I move cells down a formatted column in Microsoft Excel in order to insert information in the column above the moved cells, Excel removes the formatting from the cells into which I am inserting information, & I have to reformat them.
This is on my budget sheets. I often discover receipts from previous days in a calendar month & so have to move my date & amount spent down a column to insert the earlier spending above. When I do, the new dates entered are no longer centered, & the new figures entered are no longer formatted as money. It's so frustrating.
On one budget sheet this did not happen to a certain point in the columns, so I know it's possible. Yet if I copy a portion of a column that is retaining the formatting into a portion of the column that is not retaining the formatting, the function of retaining the formatting will not copy over.
I have not been able to find the answer to my problem anywhere. Can anyone help?
