Excel 2007 - Wrapping Issue!!

I'm having this exact same issue!! It's been driving me insane and the
IT Help Desk people at my work are useless.  Does anyone know anything
about this???  I ended up figuring out that it only occurs when you
change the font size of the text.  Anything below or above the default
11, and it doesn't matter which font (I have tried default Calibri,
Verdana, Arial and a few others). I have not tried changing the
default size to anything but 11, but I highly doubt it will matter.

Perhaps this is a bug? And if it is, it's a HUGE one! I'd be really
shocked if this is true.
I've been obsessing over this for over a month now with no help from
google.  i'm going to continue looking but PLEASE if anyone knows
anything about this, share! I've been using Excel for all my reports
and I've been going insane with this!!

Have you checked your ZOOM?

I've found that using a zoom of other than 100% can affect my font/wrap views.

Good Luck.

Not really related...  The problem isn't from viewing the file, the
problem occurs when attempting to print it. It wraps in the call
perfectly fine when i'm viewing it.  But, I mean, if the row heights
are autofit, Excel should just be increasing or decreasing the height
of the rows at the time of printing, right?  But it doesn't in these
cases. It seems to keep a set row height, even if it means the text in
the cell will be cut off.

I've had the same problem. I fixed it (suboptimally) by shifting to
Arial at 10 pt. Calibri at 10 didn't work. My guess is that this is a
holdover from how the Autofit text wrapping worked in Excel 2003. If I
remember correctly, the autofit sets based on its default of Arial 10
+ a little bit, ending up at 12.75 per line. Alternatively, you can
set the row heights using the guidelines here:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HA010346241033.aspx (expand
the "How is row height measured?" note toward the bottom of the
entry).
