Could you specify which export method you are using? If you are using ExcelML then instead <br> tag you should use "
", because that is the code for the new row. The following code snippet demonstrates how you could replace the <br> tags into the excel document.

Above solution worked but along with the word wrap style.
Add style in ExcelMLExportStylesCreated
Telerik.Web.UI.GridExcelBuilder.StyleElement StyleElement = new Telerik.Web.UI.GridExcelBuilder.StyleElement();
StyleElement.Id = "brstyle";
StyleElement.AlignmentElement.Attributes["ss:WrapText"] = "1";
and apply it for the cell in the ExcelMLExportRowCreated event
If your using the Biff Excel format to avoid the Excel error on opening the Excel file, you can use this solution. Add OnBiffExporting="grid_OnBiffExporting" client side and the method below server side.
