I was wondering if there is such a way as to edit text in the cells in Excel as in Word?
e.g. bullets and numbering, soft and hard Enter's etc.?

Basically I have a file which has some simple formulas, but I would like to edit text as in Word.

Different version of Excel can be used by me for this (Excel 2007, Excel 2010, Excel 2013).

You can also just insert an OLE object of Microsoft Word.
