In my database, I have some line breaks in certain fields. Everytime I try to import into mysql, it fails because of the line breaks...

What type of line breaks work in FM and can be imported into mysql?

Also, how can I find these line breaks and replace while in FM?

Thanks for your help.

First you'd need to find the mySQL documention on what line breaks it supports.

Then look in the exported file with a hex editor to see what the characters are (they should ascii 10 - vertical tab) if I'm not mistaken).

Then find a way of changing those *after* the export from FM.

FM does not allow returns in exported text because a line feed/carraiage return character signals the end of the record. That's why FM internally replaces then with VTs before exporting.
