How can I get the three rows (lines) within an Excel cell to be just one row (line)?  I have several columns formatted that way.  Is there a function to do this?

You can Format Cells->Alignment-Merge Cells, but that will delete the content of 2 of the 3 rows. You can add the data back afterward.

Can you find/replace on a line break?  The clean function makes it one line, but without spaces between words.

I found this on the web.

If you want to replace these line-breaks with for example a space, you can do this with Excel's find/replace command. In the "Find what:" box you can enter the line-break code, which is character number 10. To do this, press and hold the Alt key, and then enter the numbers 010 from the numeric part of the keyboard.

Thanks, Martin, that does work. Though when you use the ALT button and enter 010, nothing shows up in the Find Box. But if you proceed on to the Replace and enter a space the Find/Replace works. Thanks again.
