Try
replace(replace(replace(RTRIM(LTRIM([Fieldname])),char(10,''),char(13),''),char(9),'')

That will get rid of linefeeds, carriage returns, and tab chars in your string.

The code represents a line break, but is being lost in translation.
I take it there are carriage returns in the text that is in each cell?
Excel is hiding that character from you.
Perhaps you can view the file as a CSV or some other format that will permit you to do a find and replace.

To clarify my earlier post. The TSQL statement I suggested was for use in the Excel connection properties (if you're using a SQL statement to get the SQL Server data) or to modify the column definition of the SQL server view you are accessing.

In Excel check your connection string into SQL Server, specifically if there's a row delimeter / column delimeter with that value in there, and strip it out.   SSIS has the same issue.

If you need help getting to the connection string, follow this article about halfway down for pictures.
