Excel/excuse me, a little Question !!


I want to go to the second line in the same cell, ( want to write two lines in one cell )

Thanks very much


The easiest way is for you to use the wrap text formatting for the cell, which you can do by selecting the cell then going to format then selecting alignment then click on the wrap text box.  Try this out and see if it works for you.  If it doesn't you might want to actually put a line break in the cell as follows

Insert a line break in a cell

To add spacing between lines or paragraphs of text in a cell, use a keyboard shortcut to add a new line.

1.Double-click the cell in which you want to insert a line break

2.Click the location where you want to break the line.

Hope one of these works for you


3.Press ALT+ENTER to insert the line break.
