Default pencil in excel

I can't find the pencil and eraser tool in Excel. Anyone know where it is?

No, I'm not denying Excel has drawing capabilities (never really understood why, though) but I'm just floored that he couldn't find the line, curve, and scribble tools, which have replaced the pencil.

you are thinking of word my friend. in excel the cells are already there. in word is where the little pencil is where you creat a table and draw the cells with the little pencil and eraser.

no no no no....

IF you type up an Excel report adn print it out, you dont see teh cell borders. You only see the light grey borders on your comp screen. However, if you go to format cell, you can select to hilight those grey borders and make them black. THen when you print out the report, you see teh borders.

THe pencil tool made it easier in that I dont have to go to the format cell window every time i want to add borders. Also the pencil tool allows me to make more complicated tables.

you don't have to go to format cells to add borders around your cells, use the following shortcut in your toolbar. I still say there are no pencils in excel:
