yes, i saw that before

but how to use in my code

$objPHPExcel->getAlignment()->setWrapText($style->alignment"wrapText" == "true");
$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->setCellValue('B1','nbr of accounts');
$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->setCellValue('C1','having accessed');
$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->setCellValue('F1','total nbr of orders');
$objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->setCellValue('H1','nbr of accnts ordering');

doesn't work, of course
where can I change de WrapText style ?

I don't find any general help for things like that with phpexcel, only long list like the previous link, where i understand nothing, sorry

This API documentation is actually an overview of al lclasses and methods in PHPExcel.
You can see which classes are used in other classes, and deduct almost every possibility in PHPExcel.

Alignment can be set like this:

Yes but with Excel 2000 setWrapText didn't work. I use Excel5.

I try $objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->getStyle('D12')->getAlignment()->setWrapText(true);

or $objPHPExcel->getActiveSheet()->getStyle('D12')->applyFromArray(
                        'font'    => array(
                            'size'        => 8
                                                'alignment' => array(
                            'wrapText' => true

When I open the generate file, the file is empty. It's possible for Excel 2000 ?

Sorry for my English
