multiple lines of text within text output of formula

Copper Contributor

I would like it so that if someone keys "SO P" into cell B1, then the output is the following text within the selected cell (note, I'D LIKE MULTIPLE LINES OF TEXT WITHIN THE ONE CELL:


Full value =

Share value =


I have the following simple formula....


=IF(B1="SO P", "Full value =

Share value =","")


I tried using ALT and return within the logic, as I would if putting multiple lines within a single cell in the excel sheet, but the output still just comes out on a single line as "Full value = Share value =".




Is there a way to get them beneath each other within the one cell please?


Alternatively, I'd be happy if the single cell split if the IF condition was true and the "Full Value =" was within one cell and the "Share value =" was within another??  but I have no clue is this is possible??


many thanks!

=IF(B1="SO P", "Full value =" & CHAR(10) & "Share value =","")

Entering a line break in a formula only changes the way the formula is displayed. To enter a line break in the result, concatenate with CHAR(10), the line break character.

thank you so much! But I've tried this and am still getting the same result...?
I can't see how I can add an image into a reply so have put it in my main post....


Make sure that you turn on Wrap Text for the cell(s) with the formula:



you're a superstar - thank you so much!
