Hi,

I want to copy text from three cells (e.g A1, B1 and C1) into D1.
Each text string should be divided by line break.

For example
A1: 1
B1: 2
C1: 3
should be shown as
1
2
3
inside the cell D1

I tried the formula =A1 & CHAR(10) & B1 & CHAR(10) & C1 but that didnt do the trick.
Any suggestions?

You have to format the cell to wrap text first.

For cell D1 right click then go to Alignment tab -> Text Control make sure to select Wrap text.
