Google Sheets is a powerful tool for organizing and visualizing data, but knowing how to format your spreadsheets can take them to the next level. In this beginner-friendly project, you'll learn essential formatting techniques that will make your data more readable, insightful, and visually appealing.

Whether you're a student, business professional, or data enthusiast, these formatting skills will help you create spreadsheets that are both functional and visually engaging.
