Default Senior Scientist Showed me This.. Funny Post

So I started working at **** and I tell this one senior scientist that in Excel, if I hit "enter" it'll automatically go to the next cell. I cannot make it do a "Break line" within the same cell.

So he saids there is a macro to make this possible and I said "cool!" he emailed it to me and this is the exact code he sent me

sub breakline()
' This code will make a
' new line within the
' cell.
end sub

Just pure comments and I thought it was a joke until I saw him telling another worker the same thing. Thought it was funny.

Actually <Alt> Enter will create a line break inside a cell.

Is this "senior scientist" now a "retired scientist"?

A scientist, outside his field of expertise (and sometimes within it, LOL) is no more capable than any technically minded person.

Actually, he's probably *worse.*
