Well, make the text box 1 column high, set the EnterKey property to
default, and scrollbars = None. That should do the trick.

I need multiple lines! I have a calendar form with events displayed for each
day. Each event for the day will be on one line with a vbCrLf between them.
The text box will become active when the user click inside it. They then can
scroll down and to the right to see more information.

Your design is the problem. You should have an additiowith nal table on the
"many" side of a one-to-many relationship with the Days table. Then each event
would be its own record in the new table and you could use a ListBox or subform
to display them.

The form is a dialog based on Allen Browne's calendar form for selecting
dates. It was modified by adding text boxes to show information supplied by
a named query though OpenArgs, the data consists of a date column and a
event descriptions column. The text box is built up from all event
descriptions for each date and is strictly view only.

For example the dialog is used to schedule vacations and will display all
other scheduled vacations.

I have created a version using list boxes, that displays the information
correctly, but is not as visibly appealing as a text box, and cannot be
scrolled to the right.
