%scan for the hex character  "0D"

something like this:
do until end..
endofline = %scan( x'0d': textarea)
line = %subst( textarea: 1: endofline)
textarea = %subst(textarea: endofline)
... make sure to include conditions to process the last line and no to copy the "0d" When you display the textarea from several fields, you need to "build it" ; line1 + x'0d' + line2.....

I'm not sure you can display it to a green screen. I have done some
scan/replace of textarea data and stripped off and non-displayable
characters before I saved it so green-screen worked OK. I suppose you
could store it with the hard return and strip it off before displaying

Hey list,

How does anyone handle a hard return in a textarea field on a web form?
I can save it in a PF, but how do I detect it through an RPG read and display it properly?
