Is there a way to create a scroll bar via vba to scroll through data within a range of cells that are merged together in excel?

I have an existing form that has the cells in range A3:H41 merged into one big cell.  It’s used to paste journal updates from helpdesk tickets and in many cases the string is longer than the 28 rows.  I want to create a scrollbar to make it easier view all of the text.  Please see the attached example.

The only thing I can suggest is that you set the format of the cell to "Shrink to Fit". This will adjust the font size so that all contents can be seen in the cell area.
