title appear in center without merging cells in Excel

Q71. I have read that "Merging cells" should be avoided if possible. In Excel, how can I then make my Title appear in the center of my Data Table?

For example, in the Table below, I have a header "Employee List". I would like to center it across the Table. Can I do that without merging cells D1-G1?

This solution is much better than useing Merging cell which has its own limitations like making copy pasting or inserting rows or columns much more difficult.
