ASCII 26 is the End of File Marker.
Each line should have an OD OA (in hex) 13 10 in decimal.
13 = CR 10 = LF.
The last line should have OD OA 1A (13 10 26)

Format of PC data (TRNFMT) - Help

 :      The records in the PC document will be written in standard DOS
 :      variable length format.  The ASCII carriage return and line
feed      :
 :      characters are added to the end of each record, and the ASCII
end of  :
 :      file character is added to the end of the PC
document.                :

I don't know why you would get an ASCII 26, but the help text does say
you will get CRLF added to each line.
