Convert Embedded Lines into Single Line

Highlighted

Hi,

 

I have a data set that has some embedded lines in it and I need to combine these embedded lines into a single line in order to join with another data set.

 

Example:

Is there a 1/2 Pallet at Store?

Please refer to attachment

 

I need it to look like this:

Is there a 1/2 Pallet at Store? Please refer to attachment

 

I've tried a number of tools (Find and Replace, Reg Ex, etc) but havent been able to find a solution, any help would be great!

 

Thanks,

 

Joel

Hi @jniles

 

You could maybe use a Text to columns tool and use the delimeter "\n" for new line and split to columns. This would then have the embedded line on the same row and use can use a formula tool to concatenate the two fields back?

 

Best,
