The solution is to use the INFO function to test the current environment, then adjust the line break character accordingly. We do this by adding this formula to C3: Then we we name C3 “break” so we can use the word break like a variable later. If Excel is running on a Mac, break will equal CHAR(13), if not, break will equal CHAR(10). In column E, we concatenate the address information that appears in B, C, and D with a formula like this: The result of the concatenation is text with line breaks: Traci Brown¬ 1301 Robinson Court¬ Saginaw, MI 48607 Note: make sure you have text wrap enabled on cells that contain line breaks.
