Fonts That Make Bars Look Filled & Complete – Excel Challenges

Hey folks! Welcome. Excel TV wishes you a very happy new year. Excel Author Jordan Goldmeier is ready with the first Excel challenge in 2016, but as usual before looking at this episode’s challenge, let us have a look at answer to previous episode’s challenge.

Last Week’s Challenge

Correct Answer from last week’s Challenge

If you remember, last episode’s challenge was on Excel Colors. Jordan asked how the value of RGB (R,G,B) is calculated? So, here is the answer.

If you remember converting numbers from one number system to another number system in school, then this would help you to answer this challenge. Here you need to consider the base as 256.

So, RGB (R,G,B) is calculated as R*256^0 + R * 256^1 + R*256^2

Here, RGB (130, 210, 11) = 774786 is calculated in the same way.

Hope you got it! Interesting right?

Last episode’s winner is “Ryan Tretter”. Congratulations!

    We can use (Playbill – Font Size-10, Stencil – Font Size – 10. & Haettenschweiler – Font Size -11) for a perfect in cell bar.

  • Squalle says:

    As well as the ones mentioned above: Playbill in size multiples of 20 (20, 40, 60, etc), Stencil (size 10, 14 and a few others) & Haettenschweiler (sizes 11 & 16).

    But I’m going to go with Britannic Bold (size 11, or most any even numbered size (12, 16, 18, etc).
