    I had a look, and I don't believe this is possible. You can't do this in Excel, either (any version, Mac or Windows). Believe me, I've often wished it was possible too. The best solution that I've found is manipulating the row and column sizes combined with creative merging of cells to get things exactly the way you want them.

    The only way to do it is to have separate tables for each cell :eek:

    Well that's good to know, just in case I have a spare week to create a spreadsheet.

    Cheers
