How Do I Merge Or Split Cells?

To merge cells in Google Sheets:

  1. Select the cells that you want to merge.
  2. Go to the “Format” tab in the ribbon.
  3. Click on the “Merge cells” button.
  4. In the “Merge cells” dialog box, select the merging option that you want to apply to the cells. You can choose to merge all the cells into one cell, merge the cells horizontally, or merge the cells vertically.
  5. Click “OK” to merge the cells.

Alternatively, you can also merge cells by right-clicking on the selected cells and selecting “Merge cells” from the context menu.

To split a merged cell in Google Sheets:

  1. Select the merged cell that you want to split.
  2. Go to the “Format” tab in the ribbon.
  3. Click on the “Split cells” button.
  4. In the “Split cells” dialog box, specify the number of columns and rows that you want to split the cell into.
  5. Click “OK” to split the cell.

Alternatively, you can also split a merged cell by right-clicking on the selected cell and selecting “Split cells” from the context menu.

Keep in mind that merging cells can be useful when you want to combine data from multiple cells into one cell, or when you want to create a header or title that spans multiple cells. Splitting cells can be useful when you want to divide a merged cell into smaller cells to enter more data or format the data differently.
