Export record with fixed lengh


I have the following problem:

I have to export the contents of a record (consisting of only one TEXT-field) which contains text, its length divisible by 128, e.g. a text which has 256 Bytes.

I use the script-function "Export Record" into a "tab-seperated"-Text.

I'm using MAC and OS 10.5.x

The problem is, that filemaker adds an CR (hex 0D) at the end of to the new file.

Now the file has a length of 257 and is not longer processible, because it's not divisible by 256 any longer.

Does someone has an idea how to avoid the extra Byte or get rid of it?
