Excel has the function built in if you navigate to cell properties. But there is a much quicker way using a keyboard shortcut!

How to have Multiple Lines of Text in a Cell

If you know where you want to break the line and start a new line then click in your cell and start typing. When you get to the place where you want to start a new line, simply hold down the ALT button and press RETURN. This then starts a new line in the cell. You can do this several times within the same cell.
