Remove new line charecter from cell value in a CSV file

In excel_sheet.xls some cell contains newline character.
I created cvs (excel_sheet.cvs) form xls. In this cvs same row is divided in two row because of new line character in cell value. I want to extract values from CVS.

My requirement is to fetch the data from oracle database from Excel. by passing the three parameters.
1. string
2 and 3 are Date parameters.

steps followed to archive:

  1. setup-ed the ODBC connection in Control panel.
  2. Now back to Excel, open any excel workbook and select Data > From Other Sources > From Data Connection Wizard
  3. selected --> Other Advanced and then “Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle”
  4. updated the connection string
  5. and Command text as
    SELECT * FROM xx_salinfo a, xx_ivcinfo b
    WHERE a.num =
    AND a.status = NVL(Upper(''''||?||'''',a.status ) -- parameter1
    AND so_wr_dt BETWEEN NVL(''''||?'||''', 01-JAN-05) AND NVL(''''||?||'''', 01-JAN-15) -- parameter2 and 3

Note: This works fine without parameters. So, nothing wrong in steps.
