Hi - thanks for the reply. I tried changing the filter to your version,
and doing the filter all on one line (actually it was on one line
already but I posted that way because of the way it was wrapping). It
still does not do the job - again I can make updates to the field but
the carriage returns are not removed. I must be missing something?

The odd part is that if I just display the notes field on the form, the
carriage returns don't appear. But if I do a

select notes from transactions where order_number=1000

they are indeed present. My life would be improved if I could get rid of
