Hi,
whenever i export data from, for example a textbox with multiline enabled, to MS Excel, it will show me squares in the excel sheet for each vbCrlf there was in the textbox.

Here's an example of the code:

*********
xlSht.Cells(3, 1).Value =  txtRoot(1).Text
*********

Assuming the txtRoot(1) has this data in it:
26578
3246
3444

Then it wil show a square after each number once it is inside a cell in Excel.

How to trap this? (and replace by ALT + ENTER ?)

cheers
Ricky

It chokes on a carriage return, so the trick is to just use a line feed.
