How to Wrap Words in Excel for iOS (iPhone and iPad)

In this tutorial you will learn how to use the “wrap” function in Excel for iPhone to cope with a situation where the content of a cell is too big for its box.

Step # 1 – Purpose of the “wrap” option

One common problem when editing a document is finding that the content of a specific cell in a particular column or row is too big for it, and as a consequence, the data starts running out of the box.

Resizing columns and rows, as learned previously, could eventually solve this problem. However, there is a cleaner way to automatically change the cell measures in the exact proportion needed, which is using the “wrap” option.

Step # 2 – Finding the “wrap” option

First, you have to identify and tap the specific cell you would like to “wrap”. Then, once a green square is highlighting the box, tap again after a brief pause. A pop-up menu will appear showcasing several popular options, such as “copy”, “paste” and “clear”. The last of them is “wrap”. Click on it.
