Trying to write an SQL Script that will find a carriage return and delete it.  When I export the data to excel the carriage return is causing data to go to the next line and into the first field.
SELECT *,
	CASE comment
	WHEN CHARINDEX(CHAR(10), comment) Then
		'True 10'
	WHEN CHARINDEX(CHAR(13), comment) Then
		'True 13'
	ELSE
		'False'
	END AS CheckReturn 
FROM #Temp
Attempting to run the above code I receive error:

Msg 8114, Level 16, State 5, Line 34
Error converting data type varchar to bigint.
