Search and Replace in Excel

I need to replace commas "," with newlines in Excel.  There could be 1000 of these (in specific columns).

I can't find the mechanism for doing this via the Find & Replace.  I've seen things like Ctrl-Shift-j (but that doesn't work) as the newline.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That should work. Make sure Wrap Text is enabled.

CTRL+SHIFT+J works for me, how did it not work for you?

Was anything replaced?

In the Replace tab of Find and Replace, hold down the <ALT> key and type 0010 on the numeric keypad.

I don't know what you mean wrap text is enabled.  I have text on multiple rows all over this workbook.  There's no option for this in the Find & Replace.

Wrap Text is an Alignment setting and if you don't have it set then it may appear that the values in cells are all on one line even if there are line breaks.

Thanks for the help.  I knew there might be something like this available.

Alignment wasn't an issue and the use of the alt and numeric keypad worked.
