There is no superscript button in Excel 2007/2010 Ribbon as that in Microsoft Word. If we need to format characters as superscripts, we should open the Format Cells dialog box:

  • Step 1: select characters in one cell or cell range that you want to format as superscript;
  • Step 2: click the launcher button doc-superscript-3 in the Font group under the Home tab, see screenshot (Fig. 1);

  • Step 5: Click OK.

You can also open the Format Cells dialog box with holding down the Ctrl + Shift + F keys together.

Notes:

1. If the selected cell contains a formula, you can only format the whole cell content as superscript, but not part of numbers or characters.

2. If the selected cell only contains a value, you can't format the numbers as superscript.
