Your experience mirrors mine. That is why I asked the question. The
"technical" answer didn't help very much... not knowing what a "text box"
is, and all.

"Cut and Paste" seems to work - in the sense that "test" reports appear the
way I would like them to. However, like you, I am in mortal fear of
"thinking on my own." I have now about a week's worth of TMG experience and
have to input about 10,000 more names with considerable text (notes or memos
or whatever the are called). I have 3,300 names that I am currently trying
to clean up and would not want to do it again later because of doing
something simply because it "felt" right.

Therefore, I am presently deleting all the paragraph markers imported
through "cut and paste" and replacing them with the TMG "codes." (albeit,
under protest.) What a waste.

Ron - I don't know the answer to that one because I've always heard we
should use the codes. However, when I have copied memo text from my
wordprocessor and pasted it into TMG, I have had success with the tabs and
hard returns coming out okay on reports. Perhaps I have just been lucky
with them doing so. To be on the safe side, however, I do use the codes as
much as possible; sometimes I forget if the text has been copied, but
freshly entered text always uses the codes.
