I am reading a text area entry (with line feeds) from my asp and storing this in my SQL Server database. It writes ok (in three lines if there are three lines) in the DB but when I read this value from the DB and write it into an Excel file, the output doesn't look good. The text area entries are not written in one cell, but are written in 3 cells.<BR><BR>My idea is to get rid of the new line characters in ASP before I write the entry into the database. That way it would be stored as 1 line in the database. Then when I read the value in Excel, it would all be shown in one cell. In ASP, I've tried Replace(textareaEntry,vbcrlf," ") and it doesn't work. I also tried vblf instead of vbcrlf.<BR><BR>How should I fix this? Thanks for your suggestions.
