Question Row seperator control character in Text To Table

I would like to put a block of text within a given table cell.
I've created column separators ("@") that work great, and tried to do a line feed (^l) for sections that I'd like to keep together so that a new row is identified by a hard carriage return (^p).



What character(s) can I use that will show as a new line without being converted to a new row?

You can't specify a row delimiter - paragraph breaks and line breaks alike are treated as row delimiters. If you need to preserve line feeds and the like, temporarily replace them with another character (e.g. Find = ^p, Replace = ^0182, Find = ^l, Replace = ^0167), then convert them back again once the table has been created.
