Memo Field

P: n/a
Hi,

I am attempting to fill in 2 memo fields in the same form, which is
fine, however the information on the second memo field is based on the
information on the first one, so I need to hold the cursor location in
the first memo field when I click to add details to the second memo
field so I can read the first field while entering data to the second.

Right now if you click on the second memo field the first one returns
to the text at the top of the page.

Can this be done?

Any help appreciated, thanks.

Don't think so. A TextBox can only be scrolled and held at a scrolled position
while it has focus.

This is standard behaviour. Can not be done with one form IMO.
You could create a new (popup) form, only to edit the second memo.
