    Insert Special Characters (Excel 2002)

    I am trying to insert a non-breaking hyphen into a cell, and all I get is a square box. What is wrong? What I am trying to do is force some text to wrap in a cell where I want it to wrap. I am putting some dimensions such as 9'-4" x 10'-0" in a cell. Excel is taking the -0" to the next line but not the 10'. Is there anyway to correct this?

    Excel is not a WYSISYG word processor, so I don't think it is going to pay any attention to the non-breaking hypen. To control where the line break occurs, place the cursor in the string where you want the line break. Then press Alt+Enter.
