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.

2003 - Merging Four Adjacent Cells With Text And/or Blank Cells

Jun 14, 2008

I am trying to merge text, in four adjacent cells in the same row (say cells A1,A2,A3 and A4), into a single cell (say cell A5).

I would like a comma or full stop and then a space between each item merged (cell A5).

The text to be merged may appear in any one of the four cells (cells A1 to A4). Those cells without text are blank.

Only where all 4 cells are blank, will I need cell 'A5' to indicate this.

The formula needs to be relative as I will need to copy the formula down the spreadsheet so that it applies to additional rows.

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.

Excel 2013 :: Check Cell For Text And Return Corresponding Text In Adjacent Cell?

Jan 28, 2014

I have 2 tabs in a 2013 workbook. Inventory Receipts and lookups. One of the Data verification lookups I have is a drop down list in each cell in Column B (eg: Cat, Dog, Mouse) In the lookups tab I have another cell range containing the sounds (eg: Meow, Bark, Squeak).

What I am trying to acheive is, if B2 contains Cat, then return Meow in B3, if B2 contains Dog then return bark in b3 and if B2 contains Mouse return squeak in B3. Ideally I would like the formula to return the text from my lookup sheet (eg: 'Lookups'!C2,'Lookups'!C3,'Lookups'!C4). So depending on which option they choose from my animal drop down list .. the correct noise would automatically fill in.

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?

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.

Merging Multiple Cells Containing Text

Jan 26, 2010

I need to combine or merge text from cells in 20 rows of data into a format able to be printed. This is evaluation data for a class of 20 students, where each row is one students response to the evaluation, with the last cell in the row containing their comments (text data that may be blank, or up to several sentences in length). Here's what I'm trying to do:

Combine all 20 cells into one cell that can be printed (with word-wrap turned on).
Add a blank line between each comment.
Disregard any blank cells so extra blank lines are not added.

Merging Table Cells With Text Under Certain Conditions

Aug 31, 2009

From a supplier I will get a spreadsheet including the the following Information which I need to convert into an url including trailing slash (/) for an online store.

Column A = Value of Main Cartegory (e.g. Holidays)
Column B = Value of Subcategory_1 (e.g. Christmas Decor)
Column C = Value of Subcategory_2 (e.g. Candle Holders)

Those raw data are without any trailing slashes.
Now I want to create a column e.g. Column D (product_url) which should be a summary of column A thru C but if there is only a Value for Main Category
there should be no trailing slash,
if there is a Value for Main Category and a Value for Subcategory_1: no trailing slash after Subcategory_1 but trailing slash between Main Category and Subcategory_1.

The result should look like this:
Holidays (Main category)
Holidays/Christmas Decor (Main category & Subcategory_1)
Holidays/Christmas Decor/Candleholders (Main category & Subcategory_1 & Subcategory_2)

Is it possible to create something like that in Excel at all since all values will only be text and the trailing slash is actually functional for Excel calculations but in this case it would have to be treated as "text".

Color Cells Based On Adjacent Cells Being Empty & Add Text

Apr 2, 2008

Iím trying to make my life a bit easier, by adding a few macros and formulas to the spreadsheet (Everything was done completely manually before I got here!!!).
What I would like to do is take two columns, which contain a start and end time for work shifts, and colour them GREEN once I have entered a name in the Worker column (Along side the two with the time), and also to fill a cell with a Yes or a No. Iím aware of auto conditioning, and Iíve tried to have a play to get this to work, but I just canít work it out.
I have posted a link to an image which shows what I want. I hope I've explained it well enough!
