Vincent,
I dont quite understand what you are suggesting.
I just want the text to automatically break in next line within the cell depending on the cell size so that it does not overlap with Table border.
Can you please explain this?
Thanks,
BRAMANI.

Hi,

Since itís not a regular word it canít be hyphenated; you must specify
yourself the places where it is allowed to break. If you want a hyphen
to be visible when the text is broken you can use the soft hyphen
character (U+00AD). Otherwise you can use a zero-width space (U+200B).

HTH,
Vincent
