Defining columns follows exactly the same process as defining cells, except that it applies the cell properties to an entire column. After you have defined the row properties, you must define the cell or column properties before amounts will appear in the appropriate cells. Specifically, you must select the appropriate period for each cell/column.

To define the properties for an entire column, click the column heading button at the top of the worksheet to highlight the column and then follow the procedure for Defining cells.

Tip: After defining the row properties for a statement, you would normally define the cell properties for an entire column and then make adjustments to individual cells as necessary.
