Routine #11 from our series of text subroutines to use in EXCEL to remove all carrieage returns from a string (alt+enter). When applied to a range it will remove all carriage returns, ie. line brake character.

Code snippet below:

Sub remove_carriage_return() 'alt+enter character replace with one space
Dim selected_range As Range
Set selected_range = Range(Selection.Address)

Dim old_value As String
For Each cell In selected_range
 old_value = vbNullString: old_value = cell.Value
 cell.Value = Replace(old_value, vbLf, " ")
Next
End Sub
