I think its really difficult to wrap the texts. However, I've found some useful links that might help

Hi Mahfooj, thanks for the links.
The Annotation method kind of worked for what I needed to do, but since I may have many rows that on separate dashboards that would need to update automatically, manually creating, sizing and placing the annotations defeats the purpose. It did, however, let me at least show the idea of the visualization to my client, so thanks for that.
I think we will go with something that doesn't require text wrapping on an axis, though I did find something else that might potentially work that I'll share in case someone else comes to this thread. It's still not as automatic as it ought to be, but may be useful in some situations. I was googling around about some Tableau question, and happened to see a headline somewhere that you can use the /newline character in a Tableau string calculation. So I quickly checked it out, and it works!
CHAR(10) = /newline
Again, not ideal to the purpose for which I was trying to use it, but if I really needed word wrap on an axis I could prep the data in the database ahead of time (or someone might be able to use Tableau Prep) to add /newlines in the source data itself, according to rules of max line character-length.
