Question
Hi Tom

The following formula produces line breaks between the content of each cell.  Each cell contains a couple of sentences.

I wish to produce double line breaks between each cell reference.  Is this possible and if so could you show me how it is done?

=Q17&CHAR(10)&Q18&CHAR(10)&Q19

Thanks in advance

Chris

Answer
Christopher,


=Q17&CHAR(10)&Q18&CHAR(10)&Q19


would become

=Q17&CHAR(10)&CHAR(10)&Q18&CHAR(10)&CHAR(10)&Q19

(Of course you will need to format with Wrap Text to see the effect.  )

If I understand your question correctly.
