  • Hi,

     

    To insert new cells, rows, or columns in an Excel worksheet, follow these steps:

    1.    Select the cells, rows, or columns where you want the new, blank cells to appear.

    2.    Click the drop-down arrow attached to the Insert button in the Cells group of the Home tab.

    3.    Click Insert Cells on the drop-down menu.

    The Insert dialog box opens with the following options:

    ·         Shift Cells Right shifts existing cells to the right to make room for the blank cells you want to insert.

    ·         Shift Cells Down instructs Excel to shift existing cells down. This is the default option.

    ·         Entire Row inserts complete rows in the cell range. You can also select the row number on the frame before you choose the Insert command.

    ·         Entire Column inserts complete columns in the cell range. You can also select the column letter on the frame before you choose the Insert command.
