Chr() code for "CTRL+ENTER ket

Chr() code for "CTRL+ENTER ket

I am trying to combine (display)address data into a single TEXT box (similar to OUTLOOKS address box in contacts).

The problem is that I need a CHR() for CTRL+ENTER. CHR(13) does not work.  See below

Private Sub ZipCode_AfterUpdate()
[Text14].Value = Trim([Street].Value) & " " & ChrW(13) & Trim([City].Value) & ", " & Trim([State].Value) & "     " & Trim([ZipCode].Value)
End Sub

Also, does Access 2000 have an equiv to Excel's "PROPER" function.

Thanks for anyone's help

RE: Chr() code for "CTRL+ENTER ket

VBcr and VBKeyReturn do not work.  I need a way to send the equiv of pressing the 'CTRL' and "ENTER" keys.  There must be ansi (Chr$) or vb constant that will do this.

Hopefully, somebody knows.

This is how I get several lines of information into a textbox or even a lable.

dim str as string
str = "Hi there" & vbNewLine _
    & "How are you?" & vbNewLine _
    & "That's nice."
me.textbox = str
me.lable.caption = str

Try it you will like it!

You should be able to use the intrisic constants described above if you are using Access 95 or newer.  However, Access 2.0 had to user Chr(10) & Chr(13) to achieve the same as vbCrLf which is used today.  I believe vbNewLine provides an identical result as John said.
