In Excel, you can put a value in a cell that has CHAR(10) - NL -
between lines - this is how it is done.

On the i, I'm using x'15' for the NL.

So I insert NL between the values, as here -
KitchenNLService AreaNLExterior

This should display in the cell like this -

Service Area

Instead, it looks like this -


It seems the control character x'15' has been stripped - I want it
to convert to ASCII x'0A' <<SNIP>>

If the ASCII 0x0A is the desired effect, then the EBCDIC 0x25 would seem more appropriate; i.e. those are both LF (Line Feed), not either of NL (New Line) or NEL (Next Line).
