Hi

I have copied some text from one application into Word 2003 and the copied
text has a carriage return at the end of every line. I have tried to get
rid of them by doing a find and replace but cannot get it to work. Can
anyone help please

Are you sure that you copied text, and not a "picture" (jpg) of text ????
