Form feed in Notepad

Hi,

I need your help regarding form feed in notepad. Is it possible in Notepad to Form Feed at a certain point in a text file that I send it created by a VB program ? in simple words, how to insert a page break in a text file so that either Wordpad or Notepad will recognize it ?

Thank you

Adding a form feed character Chr$(12) will work. it may work on some printers and not others. I'm not sure in this case but I know it depends on the printer driver as to what each character does. Printers that use continuous paper normally have a form feed button or command that advances the paper to the beginning of the next page.

Free text editor program that would recognize form feed characters as page breaks. Wordpad or Notepad is not a good option. it will not gonna work on the PC where the programs are being run, and you will have to change the font before printing it out anyway. Adding a form feed character to the file works perfectly on one of the PC's that is using these programs/files when loading them into WordPad.
