i have an access table called QB_ItemNonInventory
within the table is a column called SaleorPurchaseDesc
records within this column contain carriage returns

i want to create a query that i can then use for a mailmerge (or report) that will put each record on a separate label, including the carriage return.

i've tried parsing the record our based on the carriage return chr(13) but that doesn't work on these records.

attached is a sample in access 2007 format and any help is appreciated.

example of what i'm trying to accomplish

source record:  
6" Surface Unit Element SU201 660532 [cr]CMS #801025[cr]HD Supply #233000

result:
[line1]  6" Surface Unit Element SU201 660532
[line2]  CMS #801025
[line3]  HD Supply #233000
