Hi guys. I have the following header

Tran Dte ---- Source ----- Code Amount Balance Post DteAAdd Info NB

I need a macro to get rid of the annoying line break / square box thing. Can anyone help me?

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Try selecting the cell and running

Code:
Sub test()
ActiveCell.Replace what:=Chr(10), replacement:=" ", lookat:=xlPart
End Sub
