How to keep the ```n``` char in a string in java without actually creating a new line?

Stack Overflow Asked by Adi shukla on August 12, 2020

I have a string of csv data. For some fields, the data has n char in it which is disrupting the csv file. I want to keep that n char in the data without creating a new line. Is there some way to escape the creation of a new line and keeping the char as well in java. A sample would be ->

Hello\n World
