Rotating excel spreadsheet for use in photoshop/ using diamond cells tia sal2

Greetings, All

I’m trying to get the basic spreadsheet that has square cells that looks like this
http://www.onewithall.net/rodin/excel_squares.jpg
to look like this with diamond cells that looks like this http://www.onewithall.net/rodin/excel_diamonds.jpg

Can Excel do this?
I know I can type them in manually in photoshop but I need to input 100’s of numbers. If excel can’t do this can someone recommend another program or suggests a better way of doing it if they have one.

Thanks
sal2

PS: What I’m trying to do.
I’m trying import an image of excel numbers (which will be 100s) into Photoshop to map an object.

Hello sal2,

Try this one:-
Using a grid in Excel 6 columns wide by 6 rows deep, format each cell, borders / and \ as appropriate until you have a diamond shape. Highlight the middle 8 cells (the ones with no crosshatching) and merge and centre (er if you prefer). Format alignment, vertical and horizontal, central, and insert your number. Adjust column width, row height and font size until you have the correct size and shape of diamond, then copy to repeat the diamond shapes to as many as you want. Hope this helps.

Hi,

1.Make the cells square, and change their fill to white.
2.In row 1 format the even cells’ (columns 2,4,6…) borders to the two
diagonals only.
3.In row 2 format the odd cells’ (columns 1,3,5…) borders to the two diagonals only.
4.Use the format painter to copy this format down the sheet.
5.Enter your numbers into the cells without the diagonal borders, which
is every second cell.

I left out format cells’ vertical and horizontal alignments to center.
