FMP 11.   Exporting records separated by a Carriage return rather than a line feed.

Post

This would be nice--wondering if there's a way.

Currently, when I export a series of records (I use filemaker pro to generate edit decision lists that allow machines to digitize specific sections of video off of tape or from fiels), the records all come separated by a line feed, which cannot be read by the machines that need to read them.

It's a fairly simple affair to open in Word and replace all linefeeds with carriage returns and I've got a small applet that does it...

...but could it come out of filemaker in this format already?

Not a coder, though I script.   Do not know XML.

Thanks in advance.   Have received much help here already (special thumbs up to you, PhilModJunk!)

Cheers,
