I am copying lines form an Adobe sheet and when I paste it, it goes into multiple cells. Is there a way to get it to paste into one cell?

The =SQRT(25) is a square root. For a cube root, use =125^(1/3). For a fourth root, use =625^(1/4).

I don't have a simple 1-step solution but...

1) Copy-paste the Adobe data to column A - starting in A2. This will copy it to multiple rows.
2) In B2 put the formula =b1&CHAR(10)&A2 and copy it down the range.
3) copy the last cell in column B
4) Edit-PasteSpecial-Values to cell C1

The result should be all the data in 1 cell - with the old line breaks still intact.
If you dont want the line breaks then use the formula =b1&" "&A2 instead.

I hope this helps.
