 Wrapping Text Doesn't Always Work

In Excel, the text wrap option only works speratically.
Yes, I have it on in every cell. As a matter of fact, I
have selected all the cells in a sheet and turned on the
text wrap option. When I type information in a cell,
sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. If I copy text
into a cell, it never works. Again, yes I've checked to
see if text wrap is on. Is this a know problem with Excel?

Thanks.

When you "copy text into a cell", are you just using Paste? If so, this
pastes the format as well as the text, so (unless it was copied from a cell
which itself had text wrap turned on), pasting will have turned text wrap
off. You would need to use Paste Special > Values instead.

As for typing into the cell, it will only wrap text, not numbers, dates,
etc. Is there any consistency as to when it wraps and when it doesn't? Are
you sure you get different results from doing EXACTLY the same thing?
