Linefeed character in a datagrid

Does anyone know how I can get the linefeed/carriage return character to appear in a datagrid.  When I bind to a string column (in a SQL Server table) that has text that includes the linefeed character the text displayed in the datagrid cell appears as one continues text stream, without the linefeeds.

Thanks

Hi nicksbell,

Replace the linefeed/cr with <br>. The datagrid is displayed as html so you need to use the html breaking line tag.

In your itemdatabound event, or even in the select statement use a replace statement to convert the vbCrLf to <BR>

yes, that did the trick.  I just included replace(text,char(10),'<BR>') in my select statement.

Thanks
