Excel -Show Formula - Cell Format Wrap?

Hi Experts,

How to Cell format wrap a formula?
I have tried everthing I know,   seems formula does not want to be wrapped.

You'd have to make them text for the wrap function to work.  Have a look at this link:


Below is the code from the link, to convert to text and then wrap it for printing.
Sub ListFormulas()
'from John Walkenbach
Dim FormulaCells As Range, Cell As Range
Dim FormulaSheet As Worksheet
Dim Row As Integer
Dim ws As Worksheet
' Create a Range object for all formula cells
On Error Resume Next
Set FormulaCells = Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlFormulas, 23)

' Exit if no formulas are found
If FormulaCells Is Nothing Then
MsgBox "No Formulas."
Exit Sub
End If

' Add a new worksheet
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set FormulaSheet = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets.Add
FormulaSheet.Name = "Formulas in " & FormulaCells.Parent.Name

' Set up the column headings
With FormulaSheet
Range("A1") = "Address"
Range("B1") = "Formula"
Range("C1") = "Value"
Range("A1:C1").Font.Bold = True
End With

' Process each formula
Row = 2
For Each Cell In FormulaCells
Application.StatusBar = Format((Row - 1) / FormulaCells.Count, "0%")
With FormulaSheet
Cells(Row, 1) = Cell.Address _
(RowAbsolute:=False, ColumnAbsolute:=False)
Cells(Row, 2) = " " & Cell.Formula
Cells(Row, 3) = Cell.Value
Row = Row + 1
End With
Next Cell

' Adjust column widths
With FormulaSheet.Columns("A:C")
.Cells.WrapText = True
End With
Application.StatusBar = False
End Sub

Open in new window

You can add apostrophe ' at the beginning of the formula:

'=DATEDIF('Employee Data...
You can also change the formula cells to TEXT format...

Thank you for this great solution!
The other suggestions for creating text fields are good for a couple cells, are OK but this was was fanatastic for pages of formulas!
