Share Cell Styles Across Microsoft Excel Workbooks

Merge Cell Styles in Excel

Launch Excel and open the workbook that contains the styles you want to share with other workbooks. We’ll call this workbook Share 1. Then, open the workbook that you want to copy the styles to, which we’ll call Share 2.

With both workbooks open at the same time, select the workbook you want to share the styles with. Here, that’s Share 2.

Go to the Home tab and click the Cell Styles drop-down arrow. Pick “Merge Styles.”

Select Merge Styles

In the small pop-up window, select the workbook containing the cell styles you want to copy. Here, that’s Share 1. Click “OK.”

Select the workbook to merge styles from

If you’ve made changes to premade cell styles in the first workbook, you’ll be asked if you want to merge styles that have the same name. Click “Yes” to merge those as well or “No” to only merge custom styles you’ve created.

Pick Yes or No to merge same named styles

Now, you should see all merged styles in your second workbook, Share 2. Click “Cell Styles” on the Home tab to view them all.

You can continue to merge cells with each new workbook you open the same way.

Modify or Delete Cell Styles

If you’ve only worked with new cell styles so far, remember that you can modify or delete existing cell styles in any workbook.

Click “Cell Styles” on the Home tab. Then, right-click the style and choose “Modify” to make changes to it or “Delete” to remove it.

Pick Modify or Delete for a style
