Is there any way to have the text overprint more than one line?
For example, Excel typed in cell c5 with an 18pt type will
cut off the top half of all letters unless the row
height is increased.
Is it possible to have the text expand into C4
as opposed to increasing the height of the row?
It can extend into d5 if nothing else is there

I want to keep certain text together and not have it split apart over columns
or on a new page: like several lines comprising an address in an address
book -- I want to keep it all together.
Either apply a style with the Keep With Next paragraph format option to all
but the last of the paragraphs you wish to keep together
Use Shift+Enter to make a line break within the same paragraph

I want to get or create a formula in excel or access that allows me to keep a

answer in the cell becomes 3 pens then if I zero out the received cell the

I want to sum the values together that are returned from the following

from this one). I tried "wrapping" this code within a SELECT SUM, but
it returns with "this is not allowing in subqueries".

Is there a way to export data in a MS Excel spreadsheet

This concept is the opposite of importing text as "Fixed
Width" and creating column break lines. Instead, I'd
like to export columns into a text file and specify the
amount of spaces between the text that is being exported
from each column. The amount spaces in the text file
needs to be different between each set of column data.

because I'm not trying to get rid of it).
When I do so, Line B seems to disappear, with the cursor (and empty line in
front of it) taking the place of Line B.
However, when I hit "page up" or "page down", Line B reappears.
