RE: More on the reports I am working on

You can indeed do a search and replace of space characters with
a numeric space. In the search and replace dialog, numeric space
is represented by a backslash followed by the number sign, (i.e. '\#'
without the single quotes). That is probably your best bet to get
the problem resolved based on my experience in the past.
