Sending "special characters" to text files in VB

I have a VB program that creates text files for use on other programs. Is there any way that I can insert "page breaks" so that when I open the file in MS Word it recognizes these breaks (not all pages have the same length or format so I need to specify the breaks). Thanks

Are you using "PRINT #" statements to create your text file? Try sending :
   PRINT #1, CHR$(12);

CHR$(12) is the standard FF.
