MY WIFE IS A TEACHER AND SHE IS CREATING HER PLAN BOOK BY USING EXCEL. i'M A BETTER THEN AVERAGE USER IN EXCEL BUT, i CANT SOLVE MY PRESENT PROBLEM. SHE WANTS TO BE ABLE TO WRITE TEXT IN A CELL CONTINOUSLY, LIKE I'M DOING WRITE NOW IN THE MESSAGE BODY CELL. THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW IS BY USING THE DISTRIBUTED INDENT FUNCTION IN FORMATING CELLS. THIS HOWEVER CREATES VARIOUS INDENTS THROUGHOUT THE CELL, HOW DO I ELIMINATE THESE INDENTS TO WRITE THE TEXT CORRECTLY?? PLEASE HELP.

Double-click any number in a pivot table to create a new report showing all detail rows that make up that number

Not sure why you would want to do this and not use a wordprocessor, but, just change the cell format to word wrap. Obviously when you hit return it goes to the next cell.
