    I have a very large spreadsheet with many (>10000) data/text entries. Many of the text entries consist of several words, each of which are separated by a hard break or return (i. e., Enter) as opposed to just a space. What I would like to do is remove these hard entries and replace them with a space. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Use find replace:

    Find with <alt>0010 and replace with a space

    Thanks Steve. The ASAP utility is also a wealth of resources that includes this particular functionality.
