Hi guys,

I use scrollers within excel horizontally and vertically over rows and columns, however i was wondering if anyone has any experience of using these to scroll a large text string in an individual cell when the column width is shorter than the string??

So in summary, can we use scrollers and offset to scroll horizontally through a large text string contained in one cell. If not, any other potential solutions

Thanks,
Nick

No. You can:
1. use a textbox
2. Use multiple cells instead (i.e. shorten the text in each)
3. Use a program more suited to long text. ;)
