Recently I was asked by a Controller how to show changes within a Microsoft Excel file. While there are a few techniques to do this, she was specifically interested in showing a line through old or revised text. The following is a brief step by step on the strikethrough feature available in Microsoft Excel.

1. Select the cell you would like to add a strikethrough to (ex. C2)

2. Under the Home Ribbon select Format

3. Click format Cells

4. Click on Font

5. Check Strikethrough

6. Click Ok

7. A strikethrough has been added to cell C2
