    text formatting to show in specified format

    is it possible to format thext when i hit 'enter' let say i type AAABBBCCCDDDFF, so when i hit enter, it will show as AAABBB-CCC-DD-FF
    i dont want another cell to use text, i just want to hit 'enter' and to have this format.. how can i accomplish this? thanks in advanced.

    .
    Google for SEND KEYS

    However, please don't use the ENTER key for your purposes. As you will quickly learn
    from the websites ... each time you press ENTER it will format everything the same way.

    Enter numbers ... formatted.

    Enter an address ... formated.

    Etc. etc.

    that will work, but its complicating things, i just thought there would be a simple way that i didnt know about. I guess i would just have to use AAABBBCCCDDFF , just so much harder to read when you got all the letters with no separators. thank you Logit.
