    Default Find & Replace with a newline

     
    Hi,

    I want to replace -- with a newline

    I do ctrl H to get into find and replace but the trouble is I dont know the special command for a newline?

    usually it is ^P or /r/n etc

    Thx

    In the Replace with box hold down Alt and type 010 on the numeric keypad.

    Perfect

    Thats works like a treat so I can use any ASCII codes to imply a charachter also - or does excel have its own set that i need to look up?

    Thx

    Excel uses standard ASCII characters.
