Wrap text in a cell in Excel for Mac

You can format a cell so that text wraps automatically.

Wrap text in a cell or group of cells

  1. Select the cells that you want to format.

  2. On the Home tab, click Wrap Text.

    On the Home tab, select Wrap Text .

    Text inside the cell wraps to fit the column width. When you change the column width, text wrapping adjusts automatically.

    Note: If all wrapped text is not visible, it might be because the row is set to a specific height. To enable the row to adjust automatically and show all wrapped text, on the Format menu, point to Row, and then click AutoFit.
