    Line break using Concatenate

    Hi,
    I was wondering if there was a way to use the function Concatenate and insert a line break.

    I.E.
    Cell A1 has the data 1234
    Cell B1 has the data 5678

    I want cell C1 to display the data using concatenate as:

    1234
    5678

    However, in using concatenate I can't figure out how to insert a line break between the data in A1 and B1.

    When i use the formula Concatenate(A1,B1) I get:
    12345678 in C1 when my target is

    1234
    5678

    Hi kys2000,

    Try this,

    A1 =1234
    A2 =5678

    =A1&CHAR(10)&A2 then format the cell > Alignment > Wrap text

    Thank you it works.

    Also, I found out that I could do:

    Concatenate(A1,[alt+enter]A2)
    then wrap text and it works the same.

    Thanks again
