I have a bunch of cells with line skips in them, as shown below only with the square symbol displayed after each number. I need a simple code that will convert all of them to commas followed by a space, as in: 17A, 17K, 18A ... etc.

Thanks,
John




... NO POWER 15H
17A
17K
18A
18C
18G

I believe you can go to edit and replace and copy the symbol you want to remove and paste it into the find what and replace it with the comma.

John,A simple formula will do it, assuming you mean ANSI 10 for the "line skip" (that's what Excel uses for an in-cell line break).=SUBSTITUTE(A2,CHAR(10),", ")In code you could use the Replace method, as below.Patrick
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Replace Chr(10), ", "
 
' note how the Excel function is CHAR while the VBA function is Chr  :)
