Web Form Populating Database - Web Design

Publisher 2003. Web form set to save the data in a comma-delimeted text file on my web server. Form working well, I'm able to use the wizard in excel to format the file into a spreadsheet. Only consistent problem is when lengthy text is entered into a comment field - either a Text Box which allows a large number of characters or a Text Area. It typically wraps to a new line on my spreadsheet. Anything I can do on either the publisher or excel side to prevent this?...

    That's be a formatting issue in Excel. Try clearing the field of all
    formatting. Otherwise try an Excel group and inquire about the wrapping.
