    Remove the "line breaks" within the cell to retain values in a single line

    I have a sheet where the values in Column B has values displayed with "line breaks". I need to remove & replace these line breaks with just a 'space' so that the values are displayed in a single line.

    Example: BEFORE

    Hi,

    I guess you just need to uncheck the Wrap Text option under Format Cells. Please see the attached file.

    Regards,

    Select Column-B press Ctrl+H to get the Find & Replace.

    Place the cursor in Find what and hold the Alt Key and type 010
    Click on Replace With and press space bar once.
    Click Replace all

    substitute by itself doesnt complete the job

    if you do clean by itself it will not look as nice without space in certain spots

    Hi Chandra, thanks for looking into it
    I have tried that earlier but this doesn't seem to solve the problem. when the cell is highlighted, you'll still find the line breaks in the 'entry' bar

    Try CHAR(10) instead of CHAR(13)

    One is CR, Carriage Return, the other is LF, Line Feed. Carriage Return takes you back to the beginning of the line, Line Feed goes to the next line.
