Wrap text in column


I've created a table but now I want to wrap the contents of one column, but leave another unwrapped. From what i can see, the only way to wrap text is to do so using the format tab in the vizualisation pane. This is no use to me as it would mean wrapping/unwrapping ALL text in ALL columns, which I don't want.

I am struggling with the same. Unable to wrap text in a cell. Any other work arounds ?

Correct, no way that I know of to do it on just a single column. You could post this to Ideas.

Thanks for responding so quickly Greg


I have to say, Power BI is starting to frustrate me greatly. There are countless small issues like this and given that Microsoft allow this sort of functionality in other programmes (i.e. Excel), not to mention that the other data visualisation software packages that I've used also allow this basic stuff, surely this should be available as standard??
