    outlining in a cell (excel 2000)

    Is there a way to outline in a cell? I have a table in word that I brought over and when it was brought over, it gave a new cell to anything that was outline. I would like to have one cell for all the outline. I tried using the concatenate command to bring it over to the one cell, but I can't seem to keep the format unless I space it to where it needs to go. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Excel cells are not really designed to hold word objects the way (I think) you want to do it.

    You can paste the table as a picture as a word object or some other format and then expand the size of the cell to hold the object

    You could insert a hyperlink, in a cell, to link to the word file. Press the hyperlink and the word file will open.

    Is there a reason why you want to not use excel's ability to work (like a table) by having each table object in a separate cell?

    what happen is that the document was started as a table in a word documents and then it was brought over to excel to calculate some fields. I tried doing the best formatting, but I was just curious. Thanks for the reply though. I kknow if I do a merge, I would lose all the info on a cell.

    I am not clear as to the "problem". The excel table should come over as a "table" in excel (columns are columns, rows as rows) each item in its own cell. How does "merging" come into it?
