    1,024 cell limit (Excel 97-2002)

    I know there is a limit of displaying and printing 1,024 characters in a cell in Excel and the rest of the text will display in the Formula bar. Is there any workaround to get the entire cell contents to print?

    Thanks.

    Break it up into multiple cells

    Put the text in a textbox

    are a couple workarounds. There are probably others,

    The limit varies a little with font and font size, but overall, no. You are better off using a textbox for that much text.

    Try using Tools>Option>Window Options and check "Formulas". This will display the formulas that you have in cells. You can at this point print and have a hard copy of the formulas. After you print don't forget to uncheck "Formulas".
