Normally numbers align to the right. However, if a cell has had another alignment specifically set for it, then the number will follow that alignment.

In Word: Highlight the text and click on the button that

select cell formatting, then choose the alignment you would like to
use (left, right, center).

that make it clear what you want to know. One example of aligning
text is in a table cell: <TD align="left">.

### When would you use a right align?

For Word, it would be when you want to have text to the right,
like sometimes parts of the top of a formal letter, where an
address or a date might be aligned to the right. In Excel, numbers
are aligned to the right, but text is to the left. Sometimes you
might want the headings in cells to be aligned to the right to be
closer to the values they are acting as headings for.

### What are the disadvantages of Microsoft Excel?

As with many tools there is a definite learning curve to using
Excel. Because it is so versatile and can do so much it is
difficult sometimes to know where to start.
If you are using excel to write a paper then the disadvantage
would be, excel is not meant to do that, Word would be the
Microsoft program to use.
The trick is knowing if it is the right tool for the job. It is
possible to write a paper with Excel and it is possible to create a
database with it. You can even send email using Excel 2007. This is
like asking what are the disadvantages of using a hammer. The only
disadvantage is that it may not be the right tool for the job.
Excel is meant to crunch numbers.

### How can you check if a number is prime in Excel?

There is no simple way of doing it in Excel. It would take long
and complex formulas. There is a function called MOD which will
give you the remainder when you divide a number into another one.
If a number is a factor, then it will return zero. To check for a
prime number you would have to use it lots of times on the same
number, which is not really practical. It is better to do it in a
computer program. Even now, mathematicians are still finding new
prime numbers, so it is a complex process, and well beyond what is
practical to do in Excel.

### How play game in Excel 2007?

There are no hidden games in Excel since Excel 2000. So there
are none in Excel 2007. You can use a spreadsheet for all sorts of
things, so you could play some games using numbers and formulas,
but you would have to make them up yourself, and Excel isn't really
for that kind of thing, so it could be tedious trying to do so and
what you would come up with would not be very exciting. You could
do simple number guessing games for example.
