    Cell Separation

    Dear all,

    I want to separate a cell into two parts. I can do this by adding a diagonal
    from "Fomat/Cell/Border". However, when I want to add text into two separate
    parts, it cannot be done. The problem is the text description cannot be
    separated into upper portion and lower portion as I expected. Can it be done
    and how? Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Re: Cell Separation

    You can have two lines of text in a cell by typing a few characters and then
    Alt-Enter and then some more characters which will be on the second line.
    If you preceed the second row characters it will move them to the lower
    right corner of the cell and the first line characters will be in the upper
    left area of the cell..........then a right-to-left diagonal border as
    you've described will separate the cell and produce the visual effect you
    are looking for.............

    Vaya con Dios,

    RE: Cell Separation

    Hi CLR,

    I cannot get the effect by following your gudieline. Have I missed anything?
    My steps are:

    Type: "Freshman" in a cell, then press Alt Enter;
    Type: "CLR" in the second line, then press Enter.

    The two lines of text still align on the left hand side and didn't separate
    as you've described. Please kindly tell me if my steps have missed something.

    Many thanks.

    Re: Cell Separation

    Assuming your diagonal format for the cell
    is from top left to bottom right

    instead of :
    > Type: "Freshman" in a cell, then press Alt Enter;


    Type a few spaces (use the spacebar) before you type "Freshman", i.e. use
    the spaces to push "Freshman" a little to the right, then press Alt Enter

    and then just follow through with your
    > Type: "CLR" in the second line, then press Enter.


    You'd need to manually adjust the spacing a little after viewing how it
    looks with the diagonal drawn in

    And if your diagonal is running the other way, do the spacing for the 2nd
    text line in the cell instead of the 1st

    Keep the alignment for the cell on the left

    Re: Cell Separation

    The only thing you missed is how to read in MY sleep <g>...........I swear
    my response looked good to me last night just before I went to bed.......but
    it sure didn't this morning. I see Max did come to my rescue and got you on
    the straight and narrow tho.........thanks Max... ....just typing leading
    spaces to either the top or bottom line, depending on which way the diagonal
    goes, will move that line's characters over to the right end of the cell.

    I do sincerely apologize for that first criptic response.
