    Changing cell height in excel 2013


    Hello,

    I am beginning to suspect this is not possible. What I want is to have a column with "notes" in which the cells (and the rows with them) expand downwards to accommodate additional text. Can this be done? All the online tutorials just seem to think people want lots of nice additional empty white space at the top of the cells when they change the cell height!

    Am I missing something? And can anyone help?

    just select text wrap. Column will get longer not wider though. The effect will be visible after you will finish cell editing or of you preformat cell height then all will be as you write (assuming that cell is correctly pre-formatted)

    Hit enter before I'd finished - just to say thank you - that's surprisingly simple given the amount of searching I'd done on google for the same information!
