    Default Is there way for user to type in (CR) carrriage return in char type in field

    Title say's it all. Have a box as a type in field and would like user to enter a stand. CR in some appl one can use ALT plus Enter key to get this result.
    Any help always appreciated.

    If the field is an rtf memo field then they can enter the enter key directly. (Actually either type of memo field.)

    What is the purpose of doing this in any other type field?

    Thanks Stan,
    This is a simple FYI note that users key as reminders. The keyin field needs to be be boxy in size so that is why a CR would be helpful. I will use the RTF field type.

    If the only issue is that the key in field is boxy you probably can get by with turning on word wrap.

    I have word wrap turned on but at times for clarity a CR makes it easier to read.
