2. After selecting the range of cells, type the formula and simply drag the range of cells for which you have to change the orientation.
NOTE: You can type the formula in the formula bar rather than typing the cell, as it will unselect the empty cell.
3. Just like we do in all other functions, you cannot just give enter to get the result. Since this formula has to work for multiple cells, there is a certain format for getting the result. After typing the formula, you have to give “ctrl+shift+enter”. Only then the formula will be applied for all the selected cells.
