OSQL data formating problem

OSQL - problem a line break is occuring in the output.

In certain records line breaks are introduced into the output while using osql
The data in the database is free from line breaks and carriage returns and all other non alphanumeric characters.

I've changed the "maximum characters per column" in query analyser to 8000 and tried increasing the dos window size to 1000. But that doesn't work.

If I use query analyser with results to file the data output is fine.

I'm using SQL server 2000

The OSQL is :-
osql -S ServerName -d DatabaseName -E -w1200 -Q DatabaseName.dbo.StoredProcedureName -o C:\OutFile.csv

The stored procedure (StoredProcedureName) queries various tables and uses a cursor with print to output the data as comma separated variables. This output is 910 characters long including the commas

In query analyser right click on the query window and select the option "results to file" in that file the output is ok.

The OSQL is :-
osql -S ServerName -d DatabaseName -E -w1200 -Q DatabaseName.dbo.StoredProcedureName -o C:\OutFile.csv

in the file C:\OutFile.csv some records have line breaks.

Is a DOS window the only point you are seeing a line break?? It is practical to only ever send it to a file and view the file?
