Help! I'm entering text into a cell and accidentally hit Alt + enter... how do I delete that hard return? Thanks
 

Excel Facts

Workdays for a market open Mon, Wed, Friday?
Yes! Use "0101011" for the weekend argument in NETWORKDAYS.INTL or WORKDAY.INTL. The 7 digits start on Monday. 1 means it is a weekend.

Unfortunately I'm a novice user of Excel, could you explain the formula please? :)

The formula substitutes "" for a "hard return" (that's, CHAR(10)), effectively removing it from the value in A1.

If I already have text and it basically looks like this:

sadfl asdrkase asdfasd asdfsad. asdfasd asdfas.
asdraser asdfd asdfas

where would I put the formula (with my cell reference being A12?)

In B12, for eaxample...

=SUBSTITUTE(A12,CHAR(10),"")
