 Crystal Reports and Control Codes?

How are you accessing the ASCII file for CR? With ODBC?
Or just embedding it into a text object??
Is it variable or fixed length records?
Where are the control codes in relation to fields? At the end
eg CRLF record separators or in the middle of actual data??
If fixed length, I would make the ODBC definition ignore trailing
CRLFs etc.
If it is just "one big field" I would be inclined to write a small filter
program that strips out characters you don't want - could be done
in about 10 lines of vb.
