Try Char (13). I am only on a Mac (which uses either 10 or 13 in text generally), but it is possible that FileMaker still uses 13 internally in its text.
Thanks !! it does indeed use 13. much appreciated.
Note that Patterncount can tell you the number of returns in a field or text string.
Position can tell you the location of each such instance of a character so you don't have to loop through the text one character at a time to find them.
And GetValue can be used to extract the text between return characters.
and you can use ¶ instead of the character code in your calculations.
