Format of Parcel Export Analysis

Hello.  Looking for some help with the default formatting of the export analysis generated by right clicking on the site that contains my parcels and selecting "Export Analysis".  When I select this tool, it sends the information to a .txt file that I then copy and paste into Word.  The trouble is that it adds tons of blank lines and I have to go delete tham all to end up with a presentable closure report for each lot.  Word's find and replace doesn't work consistently - it only deletes some empty lines. 


Does anyone know how to control the output from the export analysis so that it doesn't generate 5 or 6 blank lines between segments?  The format I currently get is this:




POB - North 12345' East 12345'





Segment#1 : Line




Course: N12345W Length 1234'


North 54321 East 54321








Segment 2 : Line





Length... and so on.


Any ideas?

Go to the Toolbox in the Toolspace (added by going to General pulldown>Toolbox) and find Parcel Map Check Report.


Right click and choose execute; you will get window with some nice options. In the bottom rignt click the folder icon to choose where to save the output, and the format (.html, .doc, .xls, .txt, or .pdf). I like the .txt. You will get something like this:


Parcel Name: Survey Site - ByBlock : 1   
Process segment order counterclockwise: False   
Enable mapcheck across chord: False   
North:163.0436' East:144.3968'  
Segment# 1: Line   
"Course: N 31° 50' 47"" W" Length: 0.51'  
North: 163.4768' East: 144.1277'  
Segment# 2: Line   
"Course: N 67° 15' 18"" E" Length: 0.70'  
North: 163.7475' East: 144.7732' 


This thread delves in to customizing the output of the toolbox reports:
