    Unhappy Unanswered: carriage returns, linefeeds ...


    I have a memo field in one of my tables, and I want the user to be able to insert text with carriage returns, line feeds (what ever they are). the problem is when you press return when entering data into the memo field, u jump to the next record!

    How can i prevent this?

    Also in one of reports, it sticks a load of the memos together, I need carriage returns between the memos, I tried using Char(13) but when i look at the report instead of a return I get a little square box, do'h.

    How do i do this (without the box)?

    second point first you need to use vbcrlf not chr(13)

    for the first in the text box properties go to other and change the drop down for 'enter key behavior'
