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.

A2 = A1 That kind of cell reference is relative.  If you copy it from A2 to B2, then B2 will get this: B2 = B1 That's all fine and good, but if you then insert a new row above row 2, you'll find: A3 = A1 B3 = B1 This is intentional. …
