Hardcoded carrige returns in text field when downloading to Excel

Discussion created by mmorey on Sep 18, 2008
This is for Actuate 7 on Clarity 7.5.3 When you download a report from Actuate into Excel all the text fields end up with a hard coded carriage returns (ascii 010) in order to keep the text within the column width.  This is very annoying since the text will then not wrap when the excel column is resized.   Is there anyway to stop this behavior - perhaps there is different control we should be using?
