Nice spot - I can replicate this in 10.5 Pro. I've not needed to export Memo fields to fixed-width text before but it does seem slightly odd behaviour.
You can certainly get rid of the extra tabs - use the Monarch Utility that ships with Monarch (it's in the Monarch Program folder) and select the option "Prepare files for Monarch", then Replace all instances of the string /9/13/10 with /13/10. Getting rid of duplicate CRLFs is then just replacing /13/10/13/10 with /13/10.
This can all be called from a batch file if you need to automate this.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the reply. It's not a normal setup for me, I need to insert data into the middle of the report. The memo fields worked perfect, they just had these side affects. I will only be running this model once a quarter. It won't be too much trouble to manually remove them.
I tried to code every which way around this, I thought it was internal to Monarch, which is not the case.
Oh well, thanks for confirming this.
