    I am trying to create a list in Excel but some descriptions are lengthly. It
    would be easier to distinguish between each item if, as a description wraps
    in the cell, a hangin indent was in place.

    Hi DBTI

    Hanging indents no, indents yes

    To create a hanging indent look alike, type five spaces before your text.
