Autofit cuts off part of text when printed

Guest

Hi,

I have wrapped text and autofit cells in my worksheet. When I print off the
worksheet, the last line in each cell is partially cut off. I adjusted the
rows manually to enusre my text is not partially cut off, but now, the wrap
text feature is not adjusting the cells to fit the text. Help!!

Thanks!

Perhaps it quits appearing because you have reached the cell limit for
viewable/printable characters.

Excel Help on "limits" or "specifications" reveals that Excel will allow
32,767 characters to be entered in a cell.

However, it goes on to state that "only 1024 characters will be visible or can
be printed"

To work around this limitation, stick a few ALT + ENTERs in at appropriate
spots, about every 100 characters..

The ALT + ENTER forces a line-feed and expands the 1024 limit.

How far is not really known. Just experiment.

.........From Dave Peterson..........

I put this formula in A1:
="xxx"& REPT(REPT("asdf ",25)&CHAR(10),58)&"yyy"

And adjusted the columnwidth, rowheight and font size and I got about 7300
characters to print ok.

.........End Dave P.................

Failing that, use a Text Box to store the text or MS Word which is a word
processing application, unlike Excel which is not.

Hi Gord,

No, I have not reached my limit....there only only about 30 characters in
each cell...

Is this happening in "merged cells"?

Excel has a problem autofitting merged cells.

Manually size the rows.
