How to copy a file with long records ,i.e spanning to 2 or 3 lines from UNIX to excel?

Hi Experts,
I have a Unix csv file which has long records ie the record length is more than 80 so it goes to the next line.So when its in unix though it spans to two or three lines it still counts it as one record.
But what is happening is for the records that are long when i copy it into excel i cant get it in one line,so i cant get the columns properly in excel .

Is there any way out?
