I want to be able to have a textbox in a report that contains data from 3 fields and I have no problem getting this to happen.

I would like each field to be as a seperate paragraph with a single line spacing between them.

Any suggestions how this can be done?

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Hi
Try using something like the following in your text box:
=[item1] & vbCrLf & [item2] & vbCrLf & [item3]
but remember to use your variable names.
vbCrLf = insert carriage return and a line feed
HTH, Andrew. :)

Thanks Andrew,

I eventually got away with:

=[Output1] & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & [output2] & Chr(13) &
Chr(10) & Chr(13) & Chr(10) & [output3]

But your code is a lot cleaner and works well,

Thanks again

Gordon
