VERTICALLY Aligning Text in a Text Box

I have a rather large text box in a report. Sometimes the Control Source is one sentence. Sometimes the Control Source is a paragraph.

I want to keep "Can Grow" and "Can Shrink" both set to "No".

Given this, is there a way to VERTICALLY align the text in the text box? Excel calls this "Middle Align".

Wouldn't that align it in the centre horizontally rather than vertically as requested ADezii?

I have modified the code for you as :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Command2_Click()
  2.   Label2.Caption = "This" & vbCrLf & "is a" & vbCrLf & "long" & vbCrLf & "label to" & vbCrLf & "see how it reacts to the centering"
  3.   Label2.Left = Picture1.Width / 2 - (Label2.Width / 2)
  5. End Sub

Oops, sorry about that, I guess I was 'misaligned'! (LOL)
