new line character exporting a text field


I'm exporting a text field that contains new line characters.

Instead of using the standard LF (0A hex) or CR (0D hex), I found that Filemaker as new line character uses VT (0B hex).

This character is causing a lot of problems because the application that read the text does not recognize it.

I tried to substitute the 0B chars in the text field, but it seems that FM does not look at these chars.

Is there any way to set up a standard LF or CR char in a text field?

Many thanks
