    What box are you referring to?
    A textbox maybe?

    I'm guessing that by "box" you mean a cell in the spreadsheet

    There are a couple of ways of doing this:
    • Click on the cell with the data. Then look in the 'formula bar' which is located in the top third of your screen beside the Fx symbol.
    • Alternatively, place the mouse pointer on the right edge of the column (usually specified by a letter across the top of your spreadsheet cells) in which the data is located. Then double click to make the column expand in width.

    Hope this helps.
