Create a bulleted list in your workbook (Microsoft Excel) *

Microsoft Excel does not have a built-in function to create a bulleted list like in Word, PowerPoint and Outlook. But during a course yesterday I found out you can create one using a nifty keyboard shortcut.

Here's how:

  1. Select the cell where the list is to appear.
  2. Press ALT + 7 on the numeric keypad.
  3. Type your text.
  4. Press ALT + ENTER if you want to insert another bullet in the same cell.
  5. Repeat steps 2 - 4.

With thanks to Alex for the tip inspiration!
