Hi John. Were you able to figure out the answer from Garcia's suggestions?
I've used tricks like that many times to convert when the original file has
hard returns or some other similar issue. Sometimes I make a change to put
some other character in place first, so I don't lose the places where the
hard returns are needed. If your file is set up with single CRLF for the
places that should have spaces, and repeated CRLF when there should be a
paragraph, you probably don't need to do that.
Another approach is to use an editor that's more set up for programming -
something like Notepad Plus for example.

Subject: Replacing CRLF with a space in a Word document
Yes, it's indirectly about SPSS. I have retrieved a set of statistical
notes to accompany my SPSS workshop tutorials. They were originally written
to Vax by Jim Ring in 1988 and later copied back (I think) to a DOS based
desktop as WordStar4 files in Courier New 10. I have now copied this into a
Word document (in Arial 12, but retaining the Courier fixed format for
tables and 20 year-old SPSS output.) I now need to reformat the Arial
sections. There are 65 pages and every line has a CRLF. Does anyone know a
quick way of replacing the CRLFs with a space? Otherwise it will take me
all day to go through and delete the end of each Arial line.
OK they date from 1988, but they are fantastic tutorials (not intended to
replace textbooks of that time, Norusis and Loether & McTavish) aimed at
non-numerate students and wannabe researchers. Typical reason for doing my
course, "I've got a degree in Sociology and I want a job!"
