    append to memo field

    I want to put a button on a form that pops up a window to allow text entry.

    the code will then append the text entered into a memo field in the database along with the current date and time.

    I'd like to code to append it at the start of the memo field.



    I have absolutely no idea how to do this and was wondering if anyone can help?

    See if this makes any sense to you:
    [MemoField] = [YourText] & [MemoField]
