I ran into the bug your talking about when I was developing a query app
that included an option to COPY TO comma or tab (can't remember which)
file suitable for mail merge w/Word 5.1

Microsoft Fox tech support has a fix available for download. It's a
program in Fox code that uses low level file i/o to insert missing
chr(13)'s, or something like that. If you can't get it from them, I may
have it somewhere.

1. Memo file shared between foxprod 2.5 and unix foxbase

I have a foxbase unix application which also runs under foxpro dos 2.5. My
problem is with a memo file. Some memo fields get garbaged. According to
Microsoft I should do my updating in Foxpro, which I now do. I create a
copy of the memo file for foxbase unix with the command "copy to xxx type
foxplus". However, I am still getting some garbaged memo fields, either
wrong data, or it starts half way through the correct data. Any suggestions,
