    I'm doing a large spreadsheet and the problem is that one column contains information/text in each row that is way too long and won't fit, so I need to put that info somewhere else.

    I'm thinking a word document, but that would be cumbersome to have to switch back and forth, so the idea I've hit on is a separate table in the same Numbers sheet that somehow is a word document so it's all there in one place at least.

    Is this possible? Or can anyone tell me any other way of putting a large amount of text/info into Numbers that would work? Thanks!

    Does wrapping the text (from the Inspector) not solve your problem?

    No, I don't think so. Doesn't wrapped text have a limit too?

    I'm saying, the text/info is too large to even put in a cell, there's a limit on the amount of text that will fit in any cell.

    So I need to find some way to make this work in a numbers file, without having to also have a word file as an addendum where I have to switch back and forth between the two whenever I need to reference the spreadsheet.

    Either like some way to change the text limit for a cell or add something like a word document in or something.

    It seems that your strategy is backwards. A large amount of text implies Pages, not Numbers. Paste the Numbers spreadsheet into a Pages host document.
