Ok my code worked just fine when i simply wanted to create a plain text file.  When I wanted to add line breaks I made some changes and now it is a jumbled in terms of new lines and tabs, etc.  If someone could tell me how I could get this to align I would appreciate it:

        fname = sPath & "Pursuit_Start_By_Gate_" & sRaceName & ".doc"
        Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
        Set a = fs.CreateTextFile(fname, True)
        
        a.WriteLine ("{\rtf1")
        a.WriteLine (sMeetName & Space(1) & dMeetDate)
        a.WriteLine ("Pursuit Start By Gate for " & sRaceName)
   
        a.WriteBlankLines (3)
        a.WriteLine (sRaceName & " Pursuit Start By Gate")
        a.WriteBlankLines (2)
           
         For k = 0 To UBound(RunOrder, 2) - 1
            If k = 0 Then
                sCurrGate = RunOrder(5, k)
                a.WriteLine ("Gate " & sCurrGate)
                a.WriteBlankLines (1)
                a.WriteLine ("NO.   " & "RSTR-NAME" & Space(16) & vbTab & "TEAM" & Space(16) & vbTab & "BIB" & vbTab & "START" & vbTab & "GATE")
                a.WriteLine ("----------------------------------------------------------------------------")
           Else
                If RunOrder(5, k) <> sCurrGate Then
                    a.WriteLine ("\Page")
                    sCurrGate = RunOrder(5, k)
                    a.WriteBlankLines (3)
                    a.WriteLine ("Gate " & sCurrGate)
                    a.WriteBlankLines (1)
                    a.WriteLine ("NO.   " & "RSTR-NAME" & Space(16) & vbTab & "TEAM" & Space(16) & vbTab & "BIB" & vbTab & "START" & vbTab & "GATE")
                    a.WriteLine ("----------------------------------------------------------------------------")
                End If
            End If
            a.WriteLine (RunOrder(0, k) & RunOrder(1, k) & vbTab & RunOrder(2, k) & vbTab & RunOrder(3, k) & vbTab & RunOrder(4, k) & vbTab & RunOrder(5, k))
        Next k
            
        a.WriteLine ("}")
        a.Close
        Set a = Nothing
        Set fs = Nothing

Have you tried using the Write method instead of the Writeline method?

yes.  Writeline appends a newline character at the end of whatever string you supply.
