What is Text Wrapping in Excel

If you are working in Microsoft Excel for the first time, the question ‘What is Text Wrapping in Excel’ may have come to your mind. If we only talk about the literal meaning of “wrapping,” it is paper or plastic that covers or protects something. While Text in a cell in Microsoft Excel can be wrapped to display on many lines, you have the option to manually input a line break or format the cell such that the content automatically wraps. Simply, Wrap Text is a feature in Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet applications that displays all the data in a cell, even if it extends beyond the cell boundary.
