Hi all,

I am working on a MS Excel file (2007).
Whenever I press the "Enter" key to create a new line/paragraph, the curser moves to the next cell
Could you please let me know how to create a new line or paragraph in the same cell? Do I have to change some settings?

Thanks for your help!

Waleed

Hi Waleed,

I'm using Excel 2002, but I would assume that pressing Alt + Enter at the same time also gives you a line break within a cell in 2007.

HTH,
Marion
