I want to copy a text from internet to Excel. I ctrl+C the text from the internet, then in Excel, I clicked on Paste-->Special -- then select text. Everything copied fine only one issue, some lines are so long. It looks like taking the whole row. I know it is only in one cell A1 for example, but when I click on wrapped text. The whole line stayed in A1 and A1 become so big in height.But that is not what I want. So I undo it and then cut that big line and paste the reset in the second cell A2. Can that be done in more efficient way? Thank you.

If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.
