    Limit on text in cell (2002)

    Is there a limit to how much text I can put in a cell that's formatted as text with word wrap? If so, is there a workaround to exceed the limit? Thanks.

    Although a cell can contain up to 32,767 characters, only the first 1,024 are displayed in the cell itself. And Excel is not very good at word wrap: the printed output frequently doesn't match the on-screen display.

    As an alternative, you can put text in a text box. Or use Word.
