Multiple Lines in a MsgBox

Posted on 1998-07-05
Last Modified: 2010-05-03
How do I create two, or more, independent lines in a MsgBox (i.e., not word-wrapped)?  For example, I am using this code to display educational background

Private Sub cmdEduc_Click(Index As Integer)
    MsgBox "A.A.S. Computer Science Technology - Community College of the Air Force", vbOKOnly, "Education"
End Sub

I need to display a second line for my Bachelor degree.
