ms excel vba: is there a way to make the space between wrapped text lines smaller

I am trying to cram a lot of text into very small cells and I notice alot of space is wasted by excel placing the lines of text way to far apart. in other words I wish wrapped lines were more closely packed is that possible?

You could reduce the size of the font, thereby reducing the vertical "space" between wrapped lines.

Then I don't understand what you are trying to accomplish.  If you are trying to put a lot of text into a cell, you could transfer the text to a cell comment, which would display in response to the user's mouse actions.

It isn't clear what your actual problem is.  You phrased your question in inter-line (vertical) distance when lines are wrapped.  However, I do not think that is the problem I need to understand in order to post a solution.

wow thanks for the quick response! Well heres the whole story.
I need to pack say something like up to ten words in this tiny cell without making the font size microscopic In theory If I could keep it at 8 or above. So I was thinking that if I could lower the vertical distance between the wrapped lines I could get more wrapped lines visible in the cell. comments are not an option howver because I print these worksheets which I dont know if it is possible to do at all or lined up correctly the way you get it in a cell.

Is this only the printing part that you are worried about or what data the user can see and what actions are required to see it?

It would help the experts in all your open questions if you would post an example workbook that will illustrate your problem.  If necessary, you might want to include current and desired states of output (screen or print.

Did the data print out in landscape format?

Why do you need the more narrow width?
