Issue with replacing carriage return in a string

I need to do the following:

d_tab = cl_abap_char_utilities=>horizontal_tab.
  d_line = cl_abap_char_utilities=>cr_lf.

replace ',' in d_contract with ' '.
    replace d_tab in d_contract with ' '.
    replace d_line in d_contract with ' '.
condense d_contract.

but it isn't working. It is replacing the horizontal tab but it is not replacing the carriage return. When I look in the debugger the field d_contract is '###'. After it replaces d_tab I have d_contract = '##'. It is my understanding that a carriage return is represented as ##. Also, this is the last field in the line so I assume it is a carriage return.

When it tries to replace d_line in d_contract (carriage return in the field) it doesn't replace anything.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Davis
