  1. Wow, this did the trick. I didn’t want to keep extending the cells for over a page and text-wrap solved the problem. Thanks so much!

  2. This doesn’t solve the problem for me, I have to make an invoice and want to merg the cells bleow for invoice description and the above cells will be remain split in coulums, now with merge and center, the “wrap text” command doesn’t work any one help with this?

  3. This works for me! I figured it out, and now my cells look a whole lot better to me and the people that read them! Thanks!

  4. I think the real answer to this question as I finally discovered is that it’s the button in the upper right corner of the alignment portion of the tool bar which unfortunately does not reveal the words “WORD WRAP” when the cursor is held to it. Perhaps providing the icon so people can find the darn thing would be even more helpful than any “explanation”. Thanks anyway.
