RW - writing text - weird results sometimes...

GP v 8.00 (no spack)
In RW - in report header - i want to hard code some info like iso doc number 
etc etc and some address info - it lets me put in a certain amoutn of data
then after that - say i type our company number in, then when i want to type 
in the next line of info - say street address - RW replaces what i typed with 
OTHER words also in the report header - randomly it looks like.
items like address etc can also be taken from global fields i understand - 
but has anyone else seen this and is there a fix??  (maybe in a sp?)
thanks
Theo :)

I have experienced odd behavior in RW but not the one you describe.
For a workround, try putting these as constants in calculated fields.

In an older version of RW (and I doubt RW has been enhanced much) we had 
  a similar problem. Turns out the dic file was corrupted. Try your 
modifications in a restored dictionary.
