Continuing on a new line

Continuing on a new line

Continuing on a new line

Hi all,

Sorry this is probably a dumb question but here goes...

I am using Attachmate Extra! and writing a Macro. I have a message I want to put in a message box, which I know how to do, but its a long message. It looks crappy in programming because its so long, but i cant seem to get the message to continue on the next line and still work. Is there a way this can happen?

Id love it to look more like this than one big line:
MsgBox "Before you start, Write the phrase 'End of Revision - Stop Macro' at
the end of your word document, with the word 'End' as far left as possible.
Then select all of the text you want to move into PIMS, including this phrase.
Once this is done, hit OK. The phrase will be automatically deleted from PIMS.", 49

Use vbNewLine

RE: Continuing on a new line

In what manner?


RE: Continuing on a new line

Msgbox ("This is Line #1" & vbNewLine & "This is Line #2" & vbNewLine & vbNewLine & "There are two lines above this one") 

RE: Continuing on a new line

Great! Thanks!
