This component is genuinely clear in Word, as a strikethrough symbol shows up conspicuously on the Home tab in Word 2007 and later. Then again, in Excel this component doesn't have its own particular symbol, yet it has a console alternate route, Ctrl-5. However there's no worked in essay writing route for strikethrough in Word.

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 2 years agoUsing the instructions from this page (Auto strikethrough based on cell value with Conditional Formatting) I am trying to add the proper formula to a spreadsheet with the cell value being a check mark (instead of N like the example). Ultimately, what I am trying to do is this: When I double click column A1, it will automatically add a check mark in that cell. In addition to the check mark, it will perform auto-strikethrough on cells B1 and C1. Is it possible to accomplish this? I had no problem entering a rule to add a check mark to a cell by double clicking it. And I had no problem adding the conditional formatting in order to auto strikethrough text. What I cannot seem to figure out is how to combine the 2 efforts. I do not like the idea of Check boxes and have tried that route already.
