hi Chuck

I believe I tried that, too - will verify - with the same result.

I have content in a cell that is best presented in multiple lines -
not rows, for good reasons. In Excel, this is done with the Alt-Enter
to get new lines.

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 -

Kitchen
Service Area
Exterior

Instead, it looks like this -

KitchenService
AreaExterior

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).
