I am running MS Excel 2013 on my Windows 7 computer.  Is there any way to have several lines of text separated by a hard return inside the cell?  When I hit "Enter" while typing or editing in a cell, it jumps to the next cell.

Thanks,

Phil

Select the cell and turn Wrap Text on (Home menu, Alignment Group). Then use ALT + Enter to insert a line feed inside the cell's text.
