A merged cell takes its content and styles from the first cell in the original range. In team-based editing, only edits to this first cell are retained if another person simultaneously merges the cells in the range.
Splitting a merged cell restores the content and styles of the original cells.
To merge or split cells, perform the following steps:
Parent topic: Entering and editing data
- Select the cells or cell to be merged or split.
- Click the Merge or Split Cells icon ..
Then the multiple cells that you select are merged together, or the merged cell that you select is split.
