I would like to know that if there is a way to format text within a single cell just like you do in a Word document. Specifically, creating new paragraphs and placing bulltes or numbers in front of each paragraph.
To a certain extent, you can, but there are limits to how much text a cell can contain and how much of that text Excel can display.
Here are a few tips:
• to insert a line-break: Hold down ALT and press ENTER
• to type a bullet (like the one that begins this line):
Hold down ALT...Type: 0149 (from the numeric keypad)...Release ALT
• a cell can display around 1,000 characters. There are tricks to getting
more characters to display, but not many more.
• To get the correct bullet point...you must: Hold down ALT...type 0149...Release ALT
If you don't type the leading zero, you get this character: ò
However, based on your last post, it appears that you are probably looking to do something more complicated than Excel can handle. If Excel did everything MS Word does, there'd be no need for MS Word, right?
However, it is surprising that so many people use excel to communicate results in the form of tables that is made of excel cells. I just wanted to know how much editting and formatting I can do on the cell contents and not having to transfer them into MS Word.
