    Unanswered: line in text box?

    Gotta a crazy type question here...

    Is it possible to insert a line inside a text box?

    I have a form that lists items selected by the user (each following by carriage & line return) to create a list.
    Ex.
    Supine Hip ABD/ADD
    Tibialis Anterior
    Rebounder: SLS/FS
    Shuttle Jump Prone: SL
    Unweighted Running

    What I need is a grid effect... so that after each item a line appears. I have used draw in a report, but never on a form and it isn't seeming to work.
    I tried simply putting lines (from the control box) in at the approriate interval, which works fine on my computer, but the spacing gets funky on other computers.

    Any ideas? Anyone?

    I would say the spacing messes up because of screen resolution, and font size.

    Have you tried using an actual listbox? I dont know if you can put the lines in there but I think you can.

    JS
    Have you ever thought about thinking on purpose?

    I don't know if I can make that work...
    What happens now:
    User multi-selects from 8 seperate list boxes...
    each item selected is then used to populate aforementioned text box on the form...

    I don't know how to use something quite that involved to populate a list box...
