Default How do I make a double strike-through?

I need to make two lines through selected words and text in an Excel
worksheet. I know how to make the single strike-through, but is it possible
to make a double?

Thumbs up Answer: How do I make a double strike-through?

Yes, it is possible to make a double strike-through in Excel. Here's how you can do it:
  1. Select the cell or range of cells that contain the text you want to format.
  2. Right-click on the selected cells and choose "Format Cells" from the context menu.
  3. In the "Format Cells" dialog box, click on the "Font" tab.
  4. In the "Effects" section, check the box next to "Double strikethrough."
  5. Click "OK" to apply the formatting to the selected cells.

Alternatively, you can use a keyboard shortcut to apply double strikethrough formatting. Here's how:
  1. Select the cell or range of cells that contain the text you want to format.
  2. Press the "Ctrl" and "5" keys on your keyboard at the same time.
  3. This will open the "Format Cells" dialog box with the "Font" tab selected.
  4. In the "Effects" section, check the box next to "Double strikethrough."
  5. Click "OK" to apply the formatting to the selected cells.

That's it! Your selected text should now have a double strikethrough.

Gord / Tafeille:

I'm using Excel 2003-SP2 on XP-Pro.
If I go to "Customize - Commands - Format", there is a selection for a
Double Strikethrough function button - which I actually use.

Are you sure about double strikethrough?

I see double underline, but not double strikethrough.

I also have Excel 2003, XP Pro w/SP2. I went thru the steps suggested and
you're right, it is an Underscore (or Underline), not a Strike-through.
I didn't think it could be done, but thought I'd find out for sure.

Thank you to each of you.

Hi Tafeille,

What you can do: format the desired text as double strike-through in Word,
and use Paste Special. Paste as either a Microsoft Office Word Document
object or as a Picture.
In both cases you'll have an object that floats over the worksheet cells.
Make sure the cells contain the values you want, position the object over
them, and you're done.

Of course this won't work when the values will change - but perhaps this
suits your needs.

Good luck,

Cooz
