OutputTo loses lines

I'm using the OutputTo action to save a report as an MS-Dos text file.  Access 97 randomly puts blank lines in (the Microsoft knowledge base which says to fix this by making the detail section height be a multiple of .125 inches does not solve it) and it also randomly loses a line here and there.   Any ideas?

RE: OutputTo loses lines

I've answered my own question, after battling this for a day and a half.  The lines that were getting dropped were related to page breaks in the middle of sections.  So if you set the Keep Together property to Yes in all sections, it keeps data from getting lost when using OutputTo or Save As/Export.
