Wrap Text

Copper Contributor

Hi, I need an excel document to automatically wrap text in several tabs within the same workbook when the primary sheet is populated, is this possible?

All cells within each of the tabs are formulated and link back to the primary worksheet.

I'm sure it has worked before but seems to have stopped after updating some costs last week.

The document is used for Estimating purposes in the construction sector.


Many thanks David

"Wrap text" has to be set for a cell or a range of cells. It doesn't come automatically.




Morning Detlef,

Thanks for replying.
That is the issue, all cells within each tab are formatted to wrap text. As they are all linked to the primary worksheet I expected them to wrap when cells in the primary sheet that contain quite a lot of text are populated. This doesn't happen and needs to be done manually.

Thanks David
