When you enter extra-long text more than the width of a cell in a worksheet, the remaining part of the text appears in the next cell. In this case, you can’t see the entire text when you type the text in the next cell.

Here you can adjust the cell width according to the length of the text. But the cell width disturbs the entire column width. However, we will use the Text Wrap command without such a problem. The Text Wrap command helps you wrap (arrange) the extra-long text into multiple lines in the same width of a cell.
