RTF files: Hard Return codes at end of each line

I am using a database that saves files in RTF format. When opening the RTF files in Word or WordPerfect, 'hard return' codes are inserted at the end of each line in a paragraph (essentially making each line a separate paragraph). A tedious 'search and replace' must be performed to eliminate this incorrect formatting. I have been searching the web for hours and can't find a solution to this problem. Why does this happen and (most importantly) is there any way to avoid this?

Check the database which carriage return is inserting

When saving the RTF, one thing is to insert a chr(10) "new line", and other is to insert a chr(13)+chr(10) "carriage return + new line".
If you are using VBA or VB, vbLf should be what you are needing, and not vbCrLf.

(I hope this is the correct way to ask clarification of a comment. HELP was a little vague on how to do this.)

"Check the database which carriage return is inserting."
>>Am I correct in assuming from your comment that the database program is inserting chr(13)+chr(10) at the end of each line when the file is "saved as" an RTF file?
