Hi

I currently am using a formula like this to combine cells (In B1):

=A1 & Char(10) & A2

The formatting in A1 and A2 are different however. Is there something that I can add to my formula so that when I combine these cells the formatting of A1 & A2 stay?
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.
Sorry the short answer is no.:)

You can't format the result of a formula without VBA and if you use that you need to convert the formula to a value, so obviously you lose the formula.
