DDE does not import email field correctly from SAS dataset

All other fields but email work ok. After email field Excel skips one row if there are no other fields after email, or puts fields following email in the beginning of next row. Excel produces an error that "Copy and Paste cannot be performed because size and shape...". All thing worked ok before but from some point began to produce an error.

all dde "Excel|[a.xls]b!R7C1:R60000C12" lrecl = 1000 NOTAB;

data _null_;

set lib.sas_dataset end=eof;

file all dlm='09'x;

put a b c d e f g EMAIL h i j k;

run;

I would look in your data for one or more fields that contains '09'x.

I previously created this field from SQL Server using SAS SQL. Then I began to run it on SQL Server and import into SAS to speed it up. Apparently some invisible characters were included. When I returned to old way, no problem. Thanks.
