I have one report file ex.rpt and am copying this file and saving it as new file called ex.txt. And then am sending it to printer and the alignment is bad.

Again I opened a new notepad and then copy the contents of the text file and paste it in the notepad manually and saving it as ex.txt then sending it to printer.

Its printing fine.

How can I copy the contents of the file to a new notepad file(.txt file)

your problem statement is abstract, maybe you could post your code snippet in here

I am guessing that your problem is due to non printable characters such as carriage return,form feed, tabs that you may get this issue

keep in mind that in windows newline consists of "\r\n" and not "\n"

Do one test, open same (output) file in notepad and wordpad and see if there is any difference in view in both, if yes, then the problem is
definately due to newline characters.
There is a method by which you can find out the system's newline char but i leave that to you to figure out.
