Add or append data to existing data already stored in a text or memofield

P: n/a
Hi,

Is there a way (besides Case or IIf), to type a value into field1 and
have that value added to the value inside a memo or text field?

Example:
memo/text field has: hello

in field1 i would enter: world (then run a afterupdate event)

the memo/text field, instead of overwriting hello, puts hello world...

Thanks.

Put something like the following in the afterupdate event:
Me!Memofield = Me!MemoField & " " & Me!Field1
