If all you need to do is eliminate the line numbering in the printed
text, you might just do this via script and then print the results.
Put something like the following handler in a print button:
put field 1 into tData
repeat for each line tLine in tData
--Assuming the lines are numbered as follows:
--1 This is the first line, including its number.
--Or whatever you might choose.
put char 1 of tLine into tChar
if tChar is a number or tChar is space then --or whatever
delete char 1 of tLine
put tLine & return after results
