Hi Doug

Thanks for suggestion. Works exactly as needed.

I had to use TextPad.

My regular editor is PSPad (Freeware recommend by Laurent many moons ago) which is a fantastic editor (apart from this requirement !!)

It says it is doing a Regex Search and replace but it doesn't understand "/$/?n" so does not work for my case.

I will log a query on their forum.

Thanks again,
