Proc Report split='*'

I know that in Proc report you can use a split character to break the text in a long column title but how do you accomplish this for the text withing the report?

Hi:
Remember that FLOW is a LISTING only option. To insert line feeds or line breaks with ODS RTF, PDF and HTML destinations, you would either:
1) use the CELLWIDTH= style attribute to make the cell smaller (will NOT work for LISTING)
2) use ODS ESCAPECHAR to insert the line feed ESCAPECHAR string (will NOT work for LISTING)
