How to view one record per line?



  • I have a pipe delimited text file with 424,641 records.

    When i view the file in Notepad, data shows as one record per line, as intended, 424,641 rows in total.
    When I view the file in Notepad++, data for one record overflows onto multiple lines, resulting in over 850,000+ rows in total !!!

    How do I stop the data overflow on Notepad++ so that data for one record is all shown on the one line, no overflow?
    I have tried to play with Word Wrap settings but that doesn’t work.

    would you mind making a screenshot with Show all characters activated?

    When saying
    I have tried to play with Word Wrap settings but that doesn’t work.
    what does that mean? It made it worse? Nothing happened at all? Something different happened?

    The functionality itself should “break” the lines within the visible are without assigning
    a new line number, doesn’t this work?

    Cheers
