    How can I merge columns in only first two rows?

    All,

    (Apologies as I have posted in another thread on here, but cannot figure out how to move it to this thread)

    I am trying to create an Excel worksheet for reviewing documents. I have formatted the top three rows to my liking.

    For the fourth row, however, I want to avoid using merged cells as I want to use Excel's wrap-text feature. I need a total of 7 columns starting in the fourth row.

    Is there a way to have my formating for the first two columns, including merged cells, "locked" in place and be able to format the sizing of the columns of the cells for the remaining rows?

    I have attached the first sheet as an example because trying to make sense of what is written makes my head confused. Basically, I would like to have the finished sheet look exactly as the sheet attached, but starting at the fourth row, I want there to be only 7 columns as to allow me to use the wrap-text feature.

    Thanks!
