You need a control.

View-Toolbars, Control Toolbox.
Pick a textbox from it.

Hi smoothy.

Please keep your "tech" info here. Use PMs for private messages only.

For others:

I got a PM from smooth1 that says:
Ok I got the Textbox from the Control Toolbar, but how do I get the text to Go down the text box because all it does is go from left to right continuously.


What you want to do is hit Alt+F11. This textbox is a control, which means that setting its properties requires the VB editor.
So you're in the VB Editor. You'll see Textbox1 on the left of your screen, and its properties at the bottom left. In the "alphabetic" list of properties, go down to Scroll bars, and you should have the choice of:

none
horiz only
vert only
both

:)
Choose your poison. :)
