I'm extracting data from an accounting program which contains a multi-line field (=memo field in Access). Running an Access query & then export to Excel, I get following:
Excel2003 : the relevant cell shows text separated by square box the text again for line 2
Excel2007: doesn't show square box but displays the second line together with first line (without any space to separate).
In both cases, when exported to CSV, the second line text vanishes.
I've tried the following formula in excel =SUBSTITUTE(A2,CHAR(13),""
) suggested by http://www.techonthenet.com/excel/questions/remove_chars.php
but this doesn't resolve ie. when excel saves as csv, the second line content vanishes.
Appreciate help to resolve this either in Access (accounting data table is odbc linked to access) or excel (access query is exported to excel).
