Hi there!

So, I'm making an excel spreadsheet that has to have a lot of text in it, so I added a word object in it.
The issue is that it takes a lot of space on the screen and I need a way to reduce it without compromising the format of the text.
Also, the user needs to be able to do different kinds of formating on the text in question, so the activeX textbox doesn't quite make the cut (unless I'm missing some options).

Which brings me to my question :
Is there a way to add a scrollbar in a word object in excel OR is there a way to have the "Format" Panel when using an ActiveX textbox.

Thanks for your answers

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