Hello everybody!

I'm newbie in datatables API and I'm found some issues to export data for Excel. The fist issue is that I need to whart text in same cell. for this topic I found a alternative solution passing the information as formula. The problem is I need to replace = to = to excel understand that I'm working with formulas and a I need to active the option in excel to wrap text in excel.

I tried to look in others topics but I didn't found a solution...

Below you can check my javascript code:

 $(document).ready(function () {
            keys: true,
            dom: 'Bfrtip',
            lengthMenu: [
            [10, 25, 50, -1],
            ['10 rows', '25 rows', '50 rows', 'Show all']
            buttons: ['pageLength',
                    extend: 'excelHtml5',
                    autoFilter: true,
                    text: 'Export to Excel',
                    title: 'Pré Configurador',
                    exportOptions: {
                        format: {
                            body: function (data, row, column, node) {
                                //if it is html, return the text of the html instead of html
                                data = "=\"" + data.replace(/<br>/g, "\"&CARACTUNICODE(10)&\"") + "\""
                                data = remove_tags(data);
                                $(this).attr('s', '55');
                                return data;
