Hi,

I'm attempting to copy an Excel cell, and paste it into another program (in this case, Adobe Analytics). However, it's inserting a space after every newline. Ex:
Instead of this
-It does this
-And this
-Etc
(but instead of "-" it just does a space)

When I paste it as text to MS Word, and then copy that text and paste it into Adobe Analytics the problem goes away.

My question is, is there a way I can copy the text directly out of Excel and paste it into another program without the extra space on every new line? My guess is there is some formatting code that Office programs use to denote a newline which I can't see but which leaves the space artifact when pasting it into a non-Office program. Any ideas on how to get around this?

Thanks!!
