Alternatively, select Format: Worksheet ( or press F4 ) to open the Worksheet Properties. Click the Edit Column Label Rows button (View tab). Use the Column Label Rows dialog box to choose which header rows to display or to re-order their display by dragging the empty cell to the left of the Labels. Note that you can also add or delete User-defined Parameters label rows from this dialog box.
