Text will not wrap

I am typing in Excel. I have clicked wrap text, expanded the box to view all the verbiage but after several lines, it will not wrap anymore. The last few sentences will not show in the cell at all.

Under the format of the cell, wrap text is checked. I believe there is a size limitation of characters to a cell. I believe its 255 characters. You could try using an adjacent cell an use a merge cell format as well as the wrap text by highlight both cells.

How do I create mirror image letters?


I will assume you need to print part of page backwards or upside down.
This is pretty easy using a Text Box. A text box can have a border, be opaque or transparent, force the text to flow around it or not.
To create a text box, go to the Insert tab, click Text Box and then I like to choose "Draw Text Box." You can draw it in the general area you need it. It's ok to use one of the preset Text Boxes, too.
Type your text inside.
To flip the text around, double-click your text box to activate it, and then look for the Rotate button in the "Arrange" section on the Ribbon. You can flip it horizontally or vertically as many times as you need to make your text upside-down or a mirror image.
Then edit your box - border, color, text wrapping, position, etc.
Good luck!

  3. Data in the cell wraps to fit the column width. When you change the column width, data wrapping adjusts automatically.
  4. If all wrapped text is not visible, it may be because the row is set to a specific height.

Text in excel textbox turns to gibberish


It may be a font issue... did you change the font of the typed-in text to a non-True Type face? For every typeface there are two fonts: a screen font to display on your monitor and a printer font for printing,

If somehow there is confusion or corruption in the Excel file contents about exactly which font is specified at a given point in the text box (e.g.if you type like I do with lots of backspaces, which are actually special codes that can cause such corruption), then the misfire between screen and print fonts can cause the text data to be corrupt. It seems to be an operating system issue (did you make a lot of changes to fonts on your system?) or something wrong with your personal installation of Office 2003 in any case, because Excel 2003 is a very stable release. To fix this I would try examining the Windows\Fonts folder using a third-party tool or comparing its contents to a known-good Windows installation (or simply copy and paste your typed paragraphs into Notepad and re-paste it into a new text box in a New Document (starting fresh with a new Excel worksheet could solve it all by itself).

You wouldn't be able to resize the Data Labels. The only thing you can do is either resize the Chart Area so that things will space out accordingly or right-click and format the Data Labels and make the font smaller.
