Last Modified: 2017-03-22
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.
	CASE comment
	WHEN CHARINDEX(CHAR(10), comment) Then
		'True 10'
	WHEN CHARINDEX(CHAR(13), comment) Then
		'True 13'
	END AS CheckReturn 
FROM #Temp

Open in new window

Attempting to run the above code I receive error:

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