I am working in SAS to manipulate a dataset that I will export into word.
Right now, my address variable is written as a single line; for example:
Address="123 Apple Way Anytown, NY 12345"
I would like to modify the format so that when it exports into excel, it will appear in the same cell, across two lines. In other words, I would like to force a carriage return so that the address appears as:
123 Apple Way
Anytown, NY 12345
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

This works for me (in SAS Studio, reading the spreadsheet back in via Apple's Numbers):
libname xl xlsx "&_sasws_/test.xls"; data xl.test; a = "123 Apple Way Anytown, NY 12345"; b = catx('0d0a'x, scan(a, 1, ','), scan(a, 2, ',')); output; run; libname xl clear;
Alternatively, and this seems to work too:
b = tranwrd(a, ',', '0d0a'x);
