Does not happen with LibreOffice. Maybe this is a MS Office issue, not a QGIS one(?). Cheers.

It may not depend on underscores, probably those strings ends with a newline.

#3 Updated by Giuseppe Sucameli over 6 years ago

Have you tried with different shapefiles or just that one?
Could you provide a sample dataset we can use to reproduce the issue?

#4 Updated by Damien Smith over 6 years ago

The data had carriage returns on the end. My apologies.
