Comments

If the software encounters a carriage return/line feed combination in a database field when outputting that field to an application document, the carriage return/line feed combination is substituted for string. If the software encounters string during a read of an application document, the string generates a carriage return/line feed combination.

In operations that write data to an application document, the software substitutes the specified EOLTRANSLATE string for each carriage return/line feed sequence detected in the output from a single field. In operations that read data from an application document, the software substitutes a carriage return/line feed sequence for each EOLTRANSLATE string it detects in a single field.
