Experienced Excel users will appreciate that textboxes default to having a border and white background. Thats because they are often used to add comments or guidance to a user and so have to stand out. Otherwise a user would be foolish not to type words directly into the spreadsheets cells. As equations can only be created in textboxes, the default settings are somewhat different; there is no border and no fill.
Lets keep it simple and jump straight into the simple rules of formatting with a few great tips to give you the edge on formatting.
Try not to use of keep the use of merging cells to an absolute minimum. I cant express how much this can create a lot of issues like losing the ability to sort data correctly, use copy and paste correctly and the ability to run VBA code as its does not handle merged cells very well.

This can be easily used for criteria for features such as database functions and advanced filtering.
