I need some empty lines in an excel cell. If I press "Return key", the cursor jumps to the next cell.

What should I do now?

Thanks a lot。

Press Alt+Enter, that inserts a new line in a cell.

I know another trick. May 7, 2010

I know the trick to search and replace an empty line in an Excel cell...

In the search for field, turn the Numlock on (if it is not). Press down ALT key and type “10″ in the number pad.

In replace with field, enter anything you wish to replace the empty line. Entering nothing will delete all the empty lines.
