    Which SQL engine, and how do you define "printable" characters?

    In oracle

    replace(your_dirty_field,chr(10),null) will do.

    You have to do one by one this way. I am not sure if translate() will do better. I think it won't even work. It never hurts to try but you can do it just as well. (That is if you have oracle)
