Body of email to excel split at line breaks

I've only just started with power automate, so may be missing something really obvious.

I've got a flow working - and email with a specific string in a subject line arrives, it adds a new row to an Excel table and populates the first column with the body of the email.

I want to split the email body into different columns each time there is a line break

I've tried this: split(outputs,char(10)) - but that doesn't work.
What am I doing wrong please?

Couple of things wrong:

First of all, you have not specified an output in outputs. So it needs to be something like outputs('emailBody').

Secondly, there is no char function. But you can use the expression 

decodeUriComponent('%0A')

 instead. So your whole expression would be something like:

split(outputs('emailBody'), decodeUriComponent('%0A'))
