Formatting Columns


I have formatted my columns in my sheet to all be right justified. However, when I insert a new row SS changes the format for that row. For example, when I insert a row with characters in a column, it formats it left justified even thought the column has been right justified. Any way to prevent this?

thanks in advance..

    Hi @ScottPinson_AlliedSolutions

    Did you import that sheet from an excel file? I've experienced that with imported sheets when I insert a row or column the sheet retains the original formatting no matter what current formatting I've applied. I haven't found a good workaround yet but if you're sheet is small I would suggest maually building it or trying to get the excel file formatted as close as possible to what you want prior to importing. Not great suggestions but I wanted you to know you're not alone.

  • Thanks Matt. I have also expereiced that as well with imported sheets but no this is not an imported sheet, it was build from scratch.
