I am creating a text based report on a line by line basis using a fixed width font. I need to add a carriage return at the end of each line ; the idea is to use the field with an activex control on the web to create PDF files. The report is very detailed and I would prefer to use one statement to place this text for simplicity.

usual carriage return is chr(13), but the linefeed chr(10) from the link above should do the job
