Word - Access

I already Posted this question, but maybe i had some typo errors, so i revised it a little.

I have a .dat file when i open it with M/S Word, Notepad or WordPad the whole document is on one line because there is no line break only a Tilde "~" at the end of the line.
I would like to do a edit/replace with a carriage return.
 
Also is there a utility to convert the tilde to a carriage return?
I want to open it in ms Acc2010 thru code and process line by line.
Thanks in advance

With VBA would be something like:

Sub FindAndReplaceAll()
  Dim myRange As Range
  For Each myRange In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
    With myRange.Find
      .Text = "~"
      .Replacement.Text = Chr(13) + Chr(10)
      .Wrap = wdFindContinue
      .Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    End With
  Next myRange
End Sub


Chr(13)  + Chr(10) is CrLf, but you also can use the Chr(13) only.

Thanks
I was out of my office a few days.
I'm using Access code 2010. (it doesn't like the range type)
Can you give me an example?
Also, can I just pass to the function a FileName and replace or we have to create a new output file?
Thanks again
