Export to CAD   label stacking

Has anyone solved this particular problem:

I am using ArcMap 10.1,  my data is an assessors parcel lines shapefile, and my goal is to export to CAD.

I export the polygons fine.  I use the Feature to Point tool and make a point shapefile.  I add CADType and TxtValue fields and populate.

with a field calculation in the TxtValue : [OWNER_NAME] +vbnewline + [APN] +vbnewline + ACRES.  I label my point file and it looks great.  I export to MicroStation v8i and I get two asterics instead of a new line.

I am not a programmer, but I am hoping there is a small change that will give me the 3 line stack of labels I am looking for.

The newline character sequence in Microstation is "\010"  if you add this to your text string you will get stacked text.  ArcMap unfortunately will display the /010 but Microstation shouldn't.
