    Text Word Wrap (97 SR-2)

    I have a sheet that is formatted for text with word wrap on. But when I paste text in the cell (from MS Word), it sometimes shows an overflow. No matter what the size of the cell is, I still get an overflow. I thought that text would wrap forever. I am only dealing with text of a couple of hundred characters. Shorter text seems to work. What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    Format the cell as General, with word-wrap. Cells formatted as Text seem only to display up to 256 characters.
