Is there a column limitation in Notepad?

I have an issue with a user trying to create a file that is being FTPed from the MainFrame. This file has 1600 columns in it. When the file is created and you open it, several of the columns are getting overlapped. I believe its a formatting problem on his part but he says it is not. Only other think I can think of is there is a column limit to Notepad and he is going over it which is causing the overlaping characters. When I say columns, I'm meaning characters across the text file horizontally. Also WordWrap can't be used do to the format of the file. Any insight into the limitations of Notepad would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings, ppapared !

There should be no column limit in Notepad.  Open the file in Wordpad and edit from there.

Best wishes!

Thanks. I was needing cofirmation on this. Opening the file in Wordpad does show the correct format.
