This Excel tutorial explains how to draw a line through a value (ie: strikethrough) in a cell in Excel 2011 for Mac (with screenshots and step-by-step instructions).
Use your keyboard shortcut for the strikethrough effect (Mac only) Select the text you want to strike out in your Mac Word document; On your keyboard hold down Command + Shift + X; Note: Alternatively, if you don’t want to use your Word strikethrough shortcut you can just click the command for strikethrough in the Ribbon Guide using your mouse. Not too many places originally enable this text cross out feature using tags, but you don't have to care about that, because it's just a text, nothing more. Strikethrough will now be just a part of your text. Which also means that when someone copies that text, strike out will still be present.
