Subject:   Data with Carriage return where I don't want it.

I have a very large "text file" data set that has a bunch of pockets of information that looks like the attached text file. I have been able to read it just fine for the most part keying off words in the first line, but I can't figure out the easiest way to deal with the unwanted hard return. That is, given the source of the data, I have no control over the unwanted carriage return within a record. However, I do know that the first two columns are always blank unless it's a record that wrapped. Anybody have simple suggestion on how to keep those lines together? Thanks, Jim
