There is a report that comes with many notes in one cell as field personnel enter their information daily. What we end up with is a column with many data strings inside many cells. The way they enter the data is the newest note is on the top of the cell with an & Chr(10) separating the previous text. Is there a way to have the latest data pulled out of the cell to capture only that note. Say the data looks like below

(Cell M14)
Changed 2" safety relief valve.
Ordered 2" safety relief valve.
2" safety relief valve requires maintenance check.

The only data required is the last entry so we would need
(Cell N14 to return)
Changed 2" safety relief valve.

Is it possible to pull data from the top of the cell and stopping where it shows Chr(10)?
