I Use Excel to Type Letters Instead of Microsoft Word
March 17, 2018 - by Bill Jelen
The old joke is that Microsoft Word is some freeware for people who can't figure out how to type their letters in Excel. My confession for today: I often will type letters or at least paragraphs of text in Excel. One obscure command will help make your letters look good in Excel.
I will use Excel for everything. Right now, I am typing this web page in Excel. When I am done, a macro will format it as clean HTML. For the last 30 years, I will often type a letter in Excel.
While I am not really suggesting that you type letters in Excel, you often have to put a paragraph of text below a report. The edges of each line might look ragged.
Provided none of the cells contain more than 255 characters, you can easily word wrap those sentences to fit any number of columns.
