Hi Charles,

On the surface it sounds to me like it might be a text encoding issue. 
You could do an experiment to find out. Since the textEncode() function 
isn't available in LC 6.1.3, you would have to use uniEncode() to encode 
your Word doc content before writing it to disk and handing it off to Word.

I'm rusty, but I believe you would do it like so:

     put uniEncode(tMyContent) into url ("binfile:" & tMyDocPath)

Like I said, this is an experiment to see if it makes the desired 
difference! But at least it might tell you something. And it's possible 
it will change other parts of your document into a form you don't want.

And it's possible I'm altogether wrong!

The data tag has a cr immediately after it. When a Word document is created, the cr is moved to the next line creating an extra line.  I have look at formatting but cannot figure how to fix the problem.
