    Posted: 06 Jan 2010 at 8:53am
I can not find any place on the Internet where CHRW() is explained.  I have always used CHR(13) as a Carriage Return in a Crystal Report.  We have an array filed that displays a (square) as the dilimiter when we print it frmo the tables.  One of our programmers told us that this square that is printing is a carrage return CHRW(21).  In the Split command using that as the delimiter worked.  But I have no idea why.  Can anyone tell me where I can find what CHRW() characters mean.  Are they different than ASCII control characters?
 
I found this comment:
In later versions of Crystal Reports, Chr() has been replaced by ChrW() to support the full Unicode character set. It works the same way - supply the ASCII code that you wish to be included in the formula.

and the IBM Help
 
shows it but does not give a table or show why Carriage Return is CHRW(21) not CHRW(13)

I looked up CHRw and Unicode.  The basic ascii codes were not changed when Unicode was added.  Code 21 is the NAK code (used in communications).   I wish I had an answer.
