Default How do I unwrap text to columns?

I have a spreadsheet where the addresses have been saved as wrapped text in
one column. I want to spilt the addresses into columns as Address1, Address2
etc but I can't enter the wrap character (which I think is ALT+ENTER) as a
delimiter in the Text to Columns wizard.

I have also tried search and replace but again Excel will not recognise
ALT+ENTER as a delimiter

Any ideas much appreciated! Thanks

Re-format the column to eliminate the wrap.............then use Data
TextToColumns with Alt010 (from the keypad) as the delimiter

In Text To Columns,
Click "Other"
Then hold down <Alt
Then enter
010
Using the Num keypad, *not* the numbers under the function keys.
