Now we need to space all the cells so that we can read all the information! A quick and easy way to do this is to click the area immediately to the left of column A and immediately above row 1 to select the entire spreadsheet. Now all you have to do is double-click on the dividing lines; each column resizes according to its longest entry.
Next let's add a little color to our worksheet by using the icon in the toolbar that looks like a letter A with a shaded background. Select the range B2 to E2 with the cursor and click the Fill Background icon to bring up the Color window, as shown in Figure 9.9. Now select the color you want to use. Calc fills the cells with that color. You can also change the font color by using the icon immediately to the right in the same way.
