    Hard Returns v. Squares

    Hi All-

    New to this site... please help. Trying to create a short-term solution and having an issue with this....

    Have two memo fields (Existing Comments, Add New Comments)... want people to be able to Add a New Comment to the Existing Comments Section (which is read-only- don't want people erasing old messages).

    Right now, using an update query for the field "Existing Comments" that looks something like this (don't laugh):

    [Idea List]![Existing Comments] & "


    " & Date() & [Idea List]![Add New Comments]

    My return is the Existing Comments, a little square, the date, then the new comments. Instead of the square, I want a hard return or two. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Talking Found it!

    Thanks, I tried that one, but it didn't work for me for some reason. However, I was able to insert this into the string, and it worked!
