Insert a Newline in Excel Formula (MacOS)


Question or issue on macOS:

I am using MS Excel on a Mac.

I have a formula, and I wish to insert a newline into it:

Guests!A1 & " " & Guests!B1 & [newline here] Guests!C1

How can I do this?

How to solve this problem?

Solution no. 1:

CHAR() is the appropriate function for an Excel formula, and you need character 10 (Line Feed) to create a line break. Example:

Guests!A1 & " " & Guests!B1 & CHAR(10) & Guests!C1

You’ll need to have word-wrapping enabled on the cell, otherwise CHAR(10) will just look like a little square.

vbCRLF would be the right choice when using VBA (i.e., a macro). The question is about formulas, not VBA.

Solution no. 2:

Press Command + Option + Enter

Solution no. 3:

=Guests!A1 & " " & Guests!B1 & "  
" & Guests!C1

Replace <press Alt+Enter> by the actual key combination.
On a Mac, as Coxymla suggested, you will maybe replace Alt with another key ?

Hope this helps!
