Hi,

Following is the word macro I use. Sometimes I run programs in sas and I
need to do something similar to what you are looking for, to the output list
(text) files. I have assigned this macro to a button and put it on the menu
bar.


Sub macro2()

    Selection.WholeStory
    Selection.Font.Size = 6
    
     Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = "^p^p^p"
        .Replacement.Text = "^p"
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
    
    Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = "^m"
        .Replacement.Text = "^p"
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = False
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll

End Sub

Hope this helps
rajesh

Yes, you iteratively replace all ^p^p^p with ^p^p in Word (if it is a
one-time work).
If you need this routinely -- loop through the lines of your log file,
and skip all the empty lines.
If you want to have one line empty, set a flag each time you have it.
Reset the flag after a non-empty line is output.

This is very rough. You might want to be more formal and define a
concept of whitespace, where you decide how to treat spaces, tabs,
CR/LF and other similar stuff. But that's probably not what you are
looking for,

Sergiy
