Copy a cell formatting from one cell to other cells in Excel

Have you ever been there before, when there is a cell has exactly the formatting which you want to apply to other cells in Excel? That's for sure, and we can use the Format Painter to quickly copy formatting from one place and apply it to another. But how about copying specific formatting from one place and apply it to other cells? That's why we build the Kutools for Excel's Copy Cell Formatting utility, because Format Painter can only copy all formatting from one place in Excel. We can quickly apply these operations in Excel with Copy Cell Formatting.
