Remove the first line form a Memo box

Remove the first line form a Memo box

(OP)
I could do with a little help if some's got the time..

While I'm able to capture the frst line of text from my Memo Box, I would like to know if there is a way to capture the entire text form my memo box EXCEPT for the first line.

Here's the code that I use to capture the first lime of text:
MyCapture = Left([MyMemoBox], InStr(1, [MyMemoBox], vbCrLf) - 1)

Or... What's the best way to remove the first line from a memo box (which is what I'm trying to do)

Thanks for help.

MyCapture = Right([MyMemoBox], Len([MyMemoBox]) - InStr(1, [MyMemoBox], vbCrLf) + 1)

Or:

MyCapture = Mid([MyMemoBox], InStr(1, [MyMemoBox], vbCrLf) + 1)

Have fun.

RE: Remove the first line form a Memo box

@Andy, regarding your "stations:" Might stationary stationery be somewhat like write only memory?
