Hello All
I have a .dat file that when opened in M/S Word, Notepad or WordPad doesn't recognize the carriage returns. There is a title "~" at the end of each row. I would like to do a edit/replace with a carriage return.
 
Also can i do it thru code?
I want to open it in ms Acc2010 thru code and process line by line.
Thanks in advance

press Ctrl-H for the Find/Replace dialog box in Word

search: ~
replace: ^p

this can be done programmitically as well but it is just a simple Replace in each file.  How many files are there?
