I use Office 2003.

I want to be able to include seperate "paragraphs" in an Excel cell. I.e.

Blah Blah Blah

Blah Blah Blah

vs.

Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah

However, when I type a message and I hit enter it obviously goes down a cell and doesn't skip a line within that cell.

Other than typing the message in Word and copying and pasting, is there some way I can do this?

Hit Alt-Enter for each line break within a cell. You may have to format the cell to "wrap text."
