Thanks to everyone with the quick responses. I checked with all my 
old Rev versions (1.1.1, 2.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2) and the delete lines 
in a field command does work as expected. So, Fred, you should take a 
closer look. Deleting lines is suppose to work.
However, in version 2.1RC1, it does not work. I will take 
Jacqueline's word, and hope that it has been fixed. Unfortunately for 
me, this was my last upgrade. I guess I'll have to try and find that 
old credit card and send in some money to get the latest and greatest.
