Wrapping Text in Excel

When text exceeds a column width, it is possible to manually or automatically wrap the text.

To manually wrap text,

... place your cursor where you want the line to break and press Alt-Enter.

Automatically wrapping text

... should be straightforward, but the results sometimes seem to depend on the order of operations. I find that the best approach is to first select Format > Row > Autofit and then Format > Cells > Wrap Text. Any page setup should be done last.

When I do not follow this sequence, occasionally text of a few lines will often not display, instead only showing "#" signs where the text should go.
