      That is correct - you could send your variable to a file and then do
      the ^!Replace on that, but that may not be necessary...

      I am not sure what you mean with "the line breaks boggle it". Could
      you send an example of your code?

      If I run this clip on your mail I get a block of text without line-
      breaks...

      ^!Set %Temp1%=^$strReplace("this";"that";"^$getClipboard$";0;0)$
      ^!Set %Temp2%=^$strReplace("Word";"MS WORD";"^%Temp1%";0;0)$
      ^!Set %Temp3%=^$strReplace("^P";" ";"^%Temp2%;0;0)$
      ^!INFO ^%Temp3%

      Regards,

      Hugo
