Line break (return) in Excel 2011 Mac

Hi Experts,

I'm wondering if it is possible to put a line break in a piece of text which resides in an Excel (2011, Mac) cell. Usually after a line break, the text continues in the cell (or new cell) below.
Is this possible and if so, how do you do that? Is there an escape-character or a workaround? I want to test this for a mail merge document I'm experimenting with.

Thanks!

Actually, I think it is Command-Option Enter (verified on Excel 2011).

I think so. If that is the soft line break, I have.

use alt+enter in a cell for a soft return.

OK, thanks. I will test the suggestions (and get back at it) later since Excel 11 is not installed on the Mac I'm working on now.
