Hi guys.
I am trying to get a line break in lists but every time I press Alt+Enter absolutely nothing happens.

Anyone can drop in to help please?

Thanks in advance!

I suspect you have been successful in inserting an ASCII 10 character but you do not have 'Wrap text" enabled for the cell so the display does not show multiple rows. The array formula

= CODE( MID( ref, {1,2,3,4}, 1 ) )

will test a four character string to see whether a 10 is present.
