Not sure why that would be, unless you have some empty lines at the end of your input file. You can try changing this line:

Code:
If InStr(1, MyResult, vbCrLf & MyLines(i) & vbCrLf, vbTextCompare) = 0 Then
to
Code:
If InStr(1, MyResult, vbCrLf & MyLines(i) & vbCrLf, vbTextCompare) = 0 And MyLines(i) <> "" Then
If that doesn't work, let me know.

it worked partially.
Actually, the empty line used to be three lines there. The code I used to write the text file do add an empty line, while yours do add two, making three altogether.
So this code you gave me
Code:
If InStr(1, MyResult, vbCrLf & MyLines(i) & vbCrLf, vbTextCompare) = 0 And MyLines(i) <> "" Then
reduced the lines to two altogether.

Change this line:

Code:
Print [URL="https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1"]#1[/URL] , Mid(MyResult, 2)
to

Code:
Print [URL="https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1"]#1[/URL] , Mid(MyResult, 2, Len(MyResult) - 2)
</pre>

It's a bit tough to debug at a distance without seeing the file, but here's one last idea. Add one line before the Print #1 line, and change that line to:


Code:
MyResult = Replace(Replace(Trim(Replace(Replace(MyResult, " ", "|"), vbCrLf, " ")), " ", vbCrLf), "|", " ")
Print [URL=https://www.mrexcel.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=1]#1[/URL]  , MyResult
I assume you're not using the "|" symbol anywhere in your file. If so, we can find something else.
