I have tried to find a solution to this, but have been unable to correct it.

Using Excel 2003, I have my rows set up for word wrap. When I enter text
into a cell (formatted as General), the row width will update automatically
if the cell wraps. This is how I want it.

The problem is that the row wraps before I have reached the end of the cell
being edited. I can understand that there may be some sort of margin in
place somewhere (although I cannot find any settings for this), but there
are still at least 3/4 characters that can still be entered into the cell
before I would consider it filled.

Is there a way of adjusting this 'margin' so that I can totally fill the
length of a cell before it considers wrapping. It is annoying to have a row
with double row width even though the line in the cell has not wrapped.

Hope I have made myself understood.

TIA

Martin
