I have an InfoPath 2010 form promoting fields to SP 2010. Using SSRS 2008 R2, I'm pulling those fields into a report to report off of. I'm finding that some fields in the ows_MetaInfo blob have a carriage return prefixed on them, in the format:


This is preventing the use of filters in SSRS as SSRS is seeing the "blank" line preceding the value as the value for the item. How can I remove this carriage return on the InfoPath/SharePoint side, or deal with it on the SSRS side?

I ended up solving this within the reports using the code:

Public Function StrStrp(str As String) As String
    str = str.TrimStart(Chr(10))
    Return str
End Function
