    I am writing some tables for a book im reading but i want the cells to be bigger cos excel seems based for numbers whereas i want to have space for a few sentences of writing. so rather than long thin rectagnes wehre the text goes i would like to make them bigger going down so at a certain point the words would shunt to the next line etc.

    its open office calc to be precise but same thing.

    please advise.

    On the side bar where the row numbers are, drag in between two numbers, it stretches the cells as tall as you want.

    There's 2 buttons on the top side where you can either merge multiple cells togheter,or wrap the text.

    You could make the cells in excel bigger by dragging the cell on its edge or by merging the cells. You don't have to look for any software.
