Sorry to be difficult, but the data is of sensitive nature.  The thing is, it is actually splitting it before it writes the postscript.  Using ps2ascii I would get something along the lines of:

First Name Last Name Age Sex
Height Weight
%%[Page: 1]%%
chuck riley 24 M
5'7" 137
%%[Page 2]%%

I've tried my best to duplicate it with excel, access, word and other programs, but only this records management system will do it.

If you can't help without the text version, I completely understand.

Thanks for your help.
