New line in an excel cell


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

i have a single excel cell with A very long string in it , ex: "C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 ..............C2000" 

i want to start a new line within the same cell every 20 "CXX"

i have tried using:

For $i=1 to $stringLength
_StringInsert($MyString,@CRLF,20*$i)
Next

but @CRLF is entered as a string and not as a command.

i know its a beginner question and i have searched for an answer and could not find one.

Thanks lampel.

Replace @CRLF with Chr(10).

thank you Water its working.

small follow up question :

how can i detect where to insert the new line so it wont break the line in the middle of the "CXX"

ex : "c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6" ----> "c1 c2 c3 Chr(10) c4 c5 c6"  (GOOD)

       "c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6" ----->"c1 c2 cChr(10)3 c4 c5 c6" (BAD)

This should give you an idea:

$iMaxlen = 10
$sString = "c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 c6"
$sString = StringReplace(StringLeft($sString, $iMaxLen), " ", Chr(10), -1) & StringMid($sString, $iMaxLen + 1)
ConsoleWrite($sString & @CRLF)
