If you want to put two lines of data into one cell, use the concatenat
function.  This joins up to 30 cells of information.  The easy way is:


The slow way is:


If you want to view the data on two lines in the cell, format the cell
for Word Wrap (Format menu, Cells, Alignment, Wrap Text) and make th
column as wide as the first word.

Hope this is what you want.

All the best,

Weird Calendering Problem
All, I've seen a lot of similar posts but have been having trouble regardless. We have Office XP on our Windows XP box, my wife and I each have our own XP login and our own .PST file for Outlook. If I send her a meeting request for an all day appointment, when it shows up in her calendar it shows up for 7pm->7pm the next day. In my calendar it's just all day, in hers it shows up starting at 7pm and spanning two days. The thing is, both of our time zones are set to Central Time GMT -6, and both of our daylight savings checkboxes are checked, and they are the same both in Outlook a...

In excel and a pivot table
Hi there, I'm learning to use pivot tables. How can I stop the table listing (blank) in certain cells?

random selection of cells in excel
Dear All, I need to randomly select 1 out of n subjects (n=2,...5 etc). I know the typical approach is to assign random numbers to all n subjects, and pick the one corresponding to the first random number in the string of numbers (i.e. I get 3, 4, 1, 2 as a string of random numbers, this means that I need to select subject/cell number 3). Can somebody please advise if the following is acceptable: assign random numbers and then select the one that corresponds to the maximum (or minimum). I'm doing this in excel, so the random numbers generated have values between 0 and 1 (rand() function)...

Outlook/Exchange 2000 connection problem
Hi, I appologize if this is not the correct newsgroup. Situation is the following. From some workstations (Win 24 Pro SP4, Outlook 2000) in the network, when I create Exchange service and click "Check Name" button i get message "The name could not be resolved. The operation Failed." This happens both when I enter Exchange server name, and IP. If I try to resolve name that does not exist, the message is "The name could not be resolved. The name could not be matched to a name in address list." Ping and nslookup work fine, OWA also. I even tried to reinstall Windows...

Excel responding slowly
I'm running Excel 2002 and whenever I enter data into a cell there is a longer than normal delay before the next cell receives the focus. I also find that the drag and fill takes a long time to complete. When I do a Replace, it takes a long time to do, at least until it has replaced the designated items on the part of the sheet that is visible. After that, the rest of the replacements are quick. This only started recently and I don't know what causes it. My PC is running fine and the CPU is not abnormally tasked. Any ideas? Are there a lot of calculations automatically bei...

Empty Excel file is too large
I have deleted all sheets, and contents from my excel file, but it's still 2Meg in size. When I zip it, it's only 90K Bytes. (A blank excel file is usually 90K Bytes) Why is my empty file so large? It was originally 5 Meg, and I deleted all sheets, formulas, and VB codes. Right now there is nothing (except one empty sheet), but the size is still 2M. Please respond. Sometimes what I find is that Excel counts unused rows as part of the file size. So what I do is highlight all the rows from the first unused one to the last one, i.e. ctrl+g to bring up the goto box, then Ax:a65536,...

problem working with hardware interrupt
Hi, I have searched google and have not found any indicator of an answer to the following question. I have an application that needs to synchronise to a hardware interrupt. I have a hardware driver that works fine at kernel level, and has a connection to the user level by recognition of the interrupt event occurrence. This occurs in an example dialog based mfc program, in a global function declared outside the class constructor. It works by updating an interrupt counter and updating two global variables. I want to have this interrupt event recognised by teh main GUI thread, but anytime ...

Losing Tab Delimited info in excel
I am taking an excel file that contains several lines of data and then I save it as text in tab delimited format. When I open the file in excel or word, I lose all the tabs after in the 16th row of information when there is no data in those cells. It then continues to do this with each additional row of information. Any way to fix this so I do not lose the tab delimited? Rob, Open the file in Notepad to see exactly what's in it.
