How do you introduce a CR and LF into a cell so when it is saved as a Tab delimited text file, the importing program will recognize the CR and LF?


You can use the ASCII character codes in the cell:

Line Feed =CHAR(10)

Carriage Return =CHAR(13)

If need be, copy and paste values to get rid of the formula.


You must use CRLF at the end of every row, and LF for carriage return inside a cell
