Wrapping Text - Max Characters?

Mar 27, 2007

if there is maximum number of characters in a cell, above which wrapping and the row height auto-fit functions will not work? I typed a paragraph into a cell and have the cell set to wrap and the row height to auto-fit but it does not display on print preview or on actual printing past a certain character in the cell. Even when I manually increase the row height, it still does not display.

Make Text Flow Into Adjacent Cell Without Merging Cells Or Wrapping Text?

Jul 19, 2014

I have some text in a cell, which is longer than the width that I am going to make that cell. When I don't wrap the text, it cuts it off at the end of the cell.

Since each column represents a day in a calendar, it would be incorrect to merge the two cells, but I don't want the text hidden, since I need to print the final product.

It is non-numeric text, and i've pasted --> values to remove formula issues.

Lots Of Text In Cell...stops Wrapping Text

Jul 8, 2008

I am preparing a very large spreadsheet of text. Once I reach a certain point (a few paragraphs?), the program stops wrapping the text. All of my text is visible in the box at the top of the spreadsheet when I click on the cell. I double checked to make sure it's set to wrap, which it is. I tried merging two cells, no change.

Text Wrapping Not Working?

Feb 14, 2013

I have tried all possible ways to make the entire text appear in the cell. I changed the cell sizes by dragging the row and column margins, changed text-general format and a lot other things but it appears that excel does not even know I have text in the cell. I also entered ALT+Enter to add a line break. Nothing happens. The text remains the same way. Dragging the margins only feels like uncovering the hidden layer of text under it.

Wrapping Text On Formula

Mar 25, 2009

I have a column with a formula that pulls the names of different people. Some names are long so I use the format the cells by checking the wrap text box under format cells.

However it does not seem to work. It just cuts off the end.

Does wrap text work if it is a formula and not actual text?

I am using Office 2007. I have a cell that is set to wrap the text. Only thing is when it goes over 273 characters or so it no longer wraps and all I see is ###########. Is there a text wrap limit? I don't recall there being a limit. I tried making the cell height larger but that didn't work.

Text Formula? Postcodes: Seperate The First Or First Two Text Characters From The Rest Of The Postcode

Feb 16, 2007

I am working on sales information which includes postcodes. What i need to do is seperate the first or first two text characters from the rest of the postcode. I have attached a small snipet of what i am working on. Currently i am using the =Left(A4,2) but this will give me in some case a numerical value aswell. For example E1 or G1 in the case of the sample attached. Is there a formula that exists where it will just return the text values in a cell and not numerical values.

Validate Cell For Text Length & Characters In Text

Mar 13, 2008

I have a cell (B2) I would like to apply multiple data validations to.

I know I need to use the custom formula option but don't know how to write the formula.

I don't even know if it is possible, but here is what I'm after

I need to make sure the cell is 4 digits long

I need to make sure the cell starts with a zero (Because the cell starts with a zero I have it as a text cell)

I need to make sure the 2nd number is not 0 if A2 begins with 5 (A2 is also a text cell).

Compiling Text With Certain Characters From Text

Jan 31, 2008

I frequently need to extract email addresses from huge amounts of text, like 40+ pages long, etc... I was wondering if a macro could be developed somehow to leave me with a stack of email addresses. I suppose the macro would have to test each piece of text for an "@" and a ".com" and then stack only those terms in a column somewhere. Any ideas on how to do this? I am not macro savvy AT ALL...

How To Add Three And Five Characters Between Text?

Jun 9, 2009

I've searched Excel's Help but still unsure how to do this. I hope excel experts here can lend me a hand...

I have literally thousands of words in a single columns column which looks like this:

absah
absen
absenan
absensi
abses
absis
absolusi
absolut
absolutisme
...
...
...
etc

My question is what formula if i'd have to enter to add three spaces between characters and five characters at every end of the word so it should look like this?:

a b s a h .
a b s e n .
a b s e n a n .
....
....
etc

Note i have entered a full stop at the end of the example above to make the five spaces visible in this demonstration (I dont need the period character inserted at all).

Cell Will Not Display All Text Characters? !

Aug 14, 2008

I pasted in 1369 characters (including spaces) to a cell, and NO MATTER what I try, all characters will not print.

If I have the cell up for formatting on the function line, all text can be seen, but for some reason it cuts off the last sentance or more and will not show it in print preview.

I've tried all kinds of cell text formatting, cell merging, etc. with no luck. The only work around I found is to just have the "missing text" on the following row.

Extract Text Characters Only From A Cell

May 6, 2009

This is very similar to my previous post, which was solved. Now that I've extract the numbers, I need to extract the text for the specific work activities, for example 13Z or 9GGG. I'm assuming some variation on this formula:

=LOOKUP(9.99E+307,--MID(C4,MIN(FIND({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},C4&1234567890)),ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(C4)))))

is the solution, but I'm struggling with making the correct alterations.
