See the attached file. It contain the string that i wish to parse out. The block you see in front of Sr.Manager in the attached file, i the problem . I am not sure if it is a newline character or not since i used various replace functions and it did not work.

Replace(strRip, vbNewLine, "", , , vbTextCompare)
Replace(strRip, vbNewLine, vbNullString)
Replace("\n", ")
newline.txt

vbNewLine is only LF.  You need to replace CR and LF.  I couldn't get it to work with vbCrLf, so I broke it up into to operations:

strRip = strRip.Replace(vbCr, "")
strRip = strRip.Replace(vbLf, "")

Also note that there are some tabs in there, you can use vbTab if you want to remove that as well.

You could also try replacing Chr(13):
strRip = strRip.Replace(Chr(13), "")

But that may not get you exactly where you want to be as it looks like you have tabs as well.

The above url is for SQL.

But for VB.NET.

strValue = strValue.Replace(vbCrLf, String.Empty)
