    Good Day
    I'm using VBA an dhave a UserForm with 4 TextBoxes, when typing in the text, about 5 lines to each box, the text disappears behind the end of the box on the righthand side, how could the text be kept inside the box area?
    Is it possible to tab to the next line in a textbox?
    Please help on this matter would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks Rusty

    Hi there!

    Why not just set the MultiLine property to True? It defaults as False. This should do what you're looking for. For manual line returns hold the Shift key while typing in the textbox and hit Enter.
