Tip 204 – Quickly Rotate Column Headings in Excel

When your column headings are longer than the data you are entering into a column, you can rotate the headings so they take less room. To do this, select the column headings and from the Home tab on the Ribbon, choose Orientation and then an option such as Rotate Text Up. Now select the columns letters themselves and double click with the cursor between two selected columns to reduce the column width.
