I am doing a family history excel document. One row should have approx. 3
lines of info, however, I can only get one row of info to show. When I
dclick that row the info shows but when I print or do a print preview only
one line of info shows. I have merged the cells in that row.
It sounds like you need to select Wrap Text from the Alignment tab of the
Format Cells dialog and/or increase the height of the row to accommodate the
numbers of rows of text in the cell.

You don't need a macro, and if you used one you would lose the integrity of the
colouring anytime you sorted the data, or deleted cells etc.
Use a conditional format to do this and it will not move when you sort the

macro, then it is the GotoRecord action, also in VBA Help.

I have a spread sheet set up in a MS Excel 2002. I know there is a formula

in UPPER case.
May someone please tell me how to use formula within a column? Step-by-step
instructions will be appreciated.
