How to insert a degree symbol in Excel


Does anyone know how to insert a degree symbol in Excel? I cant find the option. 


You can add a degree symbol in Excel in two ways.

  • Using Keyboard Shortcut: Place the cursor where you want the symbol, then press Alt + 0176 on the numeric keypad.
  • Using the Symbol Menu: Go to the "Insert" tab, click "Symbol", select the degree symbol (°) from the list, and click "Insert".

You can aslo insert a degree symbol using these two methods:

  • Using Formula: Type =CHAR(176) to insert the degree symbol in a cell.
  • Using Copy-Paste: Copy the degree symbol (°) from a source and paste it into the desired cell in Excel.
