Really easy question - line break

I know that this must be a very basic question but I just can't find
the answer to it in excel help.

When I am typing in a cell how can I force excel to start a new line
without tabing the word to the end of the current cell.


This is what I get 

Mr Jones 25 Freemount Street Potter Bar End

and this is what I would like

Mr Jones
25 Freemount Street
Potter Bar End

Apologies for the really silly question.

Thank you

Select Distinct Question
I have a select distinct query that provides CustomerID Address City State Zip I need to add the Customer Name to the distinct list I created but here is the problem. This individual rows that roll up to make a distinct records may contain variations in the Customer Name thus creating duplicates. I guess Access as to have a distinct RECORD as opposed to a distinct field. Which Customer Name that get added to the list doesn't matter to me. How do I create a query that will just use the first Customer name it encounters when I link on CustomerID use group by instead of distinct a...

CButton question
Does anyone know if there's a way that I can achieve the same visual effect with a CButton object that I can by calling SetReadOnly() for a CEdit object? That is, have it greyed out but not disabled while still allowing me to check and uncheck it via software (users will not be permitted to do this).

pivot table question
When I try to drag a column heading to the table Excel says "A field in your source data has more unique items than can be used in a pivot table."

Really, REALLY big picklists
Hi guys, Our client wants to have a picklist with about 3700-3800 values in it, and wants to add further items to it. It wasn't until it got to our data migration guy, who was entering them in manually and wanted my help on the matter that it was brought to my attention. They want to retrieve the 3700-3800 values, select the information, and return the name of the entry. Apparently typing the name in is too hard, or would result in too many mis-entries. Basically I think the idea is retarded and a really, really bad idea, especially since I couldn't find any supported methods to a...

Order Question
Hope this is not a duplicate as I got an error when I tried to post last time. What is the best way to get an order to distribution and/or accounting?

Ubuntu really sucks
Ubuntu sucks. Instead of moving forward with every release, they have the uncanny ability to take Linux back in time by piling code that doesn't work on top of more code that doesn't work until they have turned their OS into a garbage salad. 8.10 was GREAT, and for the most part everything worked. Some things were missing concerning support of newer Eees, but then they released Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04. 9.04 could only have been released completely untested, as they missed something as stupid as the Intel tiling kernel bug which caused every Intel card out there to crawl during...

Import Acces data into Excel using MSQUERY question
Quick question please I'm doing a database query from Excel 2003 in Access. I go: Data/Import External Data/New Database Query/ and then I progess through the wizard, selecting my Access file, selecting the matching criteria and then selecting the cell in the Excel sheet to import to. It grabs the right records from Access, but it imports the data from a record across a row, and I'd like to go down a column, cause that's where the proper target fields are for the fields from Access. Why does it seem I can only import data across a row using MSQUERY? Thanks Harry Don'...

Really strange payables data
