Default Format : Memo

I am trying to have an area on my form be used for inserting a communication like a letter.

ie. Thanks for choosing "X" company. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at "Some Number" Signed Bob.

Currently I am using the Memo format for the field, but I have encountered that when you press Enter, the focus changes to the next Tab order.

What I want to do is make it move to the next line like a carriage return.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Scandalous,
In the properties of your memo field, there is a property called "Enter Key Behavior". Set this to "New Line In Field"

HTH,

Kevin
