The problem is with your put statements
put "This is line 1 " & time() & CR into line 1 of field "checkCR"
if you put into line 1 then you should not have '& cr' as this causes
an insert of a new empty line after line 1, effectively pushing your
former line 2 to become 3. The same happens for each put, so the
effect is cascading.
