    Have two text cells. Want both cells combined into one cell. But cell A is in bold and should remain in bold, while cell B is in italics. B should be on separate line.

    My current formula in C is =A1 (Alt+Enter for new line)&B1

    Hoqwever, I loose the bold type of Cell A

    Font formatting can only be applied to text . =A1&B1 is composed of cell references. Cell references do not inherit the font formatting of their contents.

    How do you insert the "alt+enter" into the formula to get a hard return in the cell?

    =A1& CHAR(10) &B1

    Make sure the cell is set to "Wrap Text".

    Thank you....

    I was missing the additional "&" symbol.

    This board is great!
