Long Text Strings Not Showing In Adjacent Cells

Under macro control, I copy a list of text strings from one worksheet to
another. The text strings are long. In the target cells, text is
showing only in the target cell. I'd like to have it flow into adjacent
cells as well since nothing is there. The format cells options don't
seem to have an effect.

How do I get the entire text strings to show without visiting each cell
in the worksheet?

text to columns w a line break
Good morning, I'm trying to separate a worksheet containing single cells with mutiple columns of data lumped together. These are some names and addresses, states, zips, all in a single cell for each entry. Looks like this 'Sample Company<strange character>Street Address<strange character>City<strange character>State<strange character>zip Problem is, there is a strange "square" or block character that denotes the separation of each field. I am told tis is a line break. Text to columns does not recognize this character, and I'm unsure of which ...

Paste Text into Outlook Email gives icon not text
Hello, I ran into a problem with one of our offices and it is baffling me. When I open a Word document and type in text -> Select All -> then Copy. Then I open Outlook and then Paste the text in an email and it copies over an icon that has a green arrow pointing up out of what looks like a waste basket. Then there is a yellow box with an exclamation on the front of the waste basket. I have: Changed the Normal.dot template to make sure it was not corrupted. Changed the New email to not open as an HTML document. Still, the icon keeps appearing when trying to copy text. Any ideas?...

Milo: What is microsoft.windowslive.translator.btn? Name too long
In "C:\Documents and Settings\[myname]\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live\Toolbar\Custom Buttons", there is a folder called microsoft.windowslive.translator.btn that is causing me to have trouble backing up my computer. I'm being told that that path or folder name is too long. At first I thought it was the path, but trying to copy microsoft.windowslive.translator.btn DIRECTLY into the MyDocuments folder caused the same error, so now I'm pretty sure that it’s the 36 characters in that folder name that is the problem.

text display as #### instead of wrapping
I have a cell with about 500 characters of text that displays as a single line of number signs. There are no 'alt-enter' line breaks. This is not a merged cell. Under format cells, Alignment I have Wrap text selected. Under the Number tab, I have Text as the Category, and the sample shows the line of number signs. If I choose 'Special' and 'Zip Code' both the Sample box and the cell wrap just fine and display the all the text. When displayed correctly, the cell is 83.71 wide and there a 6 lines of text.

Table row cell adjustment

possible to show an XML file using CHTML?

Preventing text wrapping
Hi I wasn't sure whether to post here or on the developer site, but here goes. Some of the shapes that a user can "drop" onto the page are small and the associated text tends to wrap around if the text is wider than the width of the shape. Is there any way of preventing this text wrap? Thanks for any help anyone can provide. Best regards, Marek Visio lacks the dotdotdot "Don't show all the te..." feature for it's shapes. On the other hand, you can get shapes to grow so that the geometry always encompasses the text. Open the Blocks stencil, and check out...

Compare two strings and find longest common sub-string
The problem seems relatively straightward to the human eye but I imagine it's quite difficult to do in VBA without prior knowledge of what the strings contain. If I have two strings like: The quick red fox jumped over the lazy brown cow The quick red fox just stood there How would I compare them and identify "quick red fox" as the longest common sub-string? I suppose I would have to start by reading one of the strings into an array and comparing its elements against the second string? Or somehow use the Filter function to send the matching items to another array? B...
