sorry yes you are right it does word wrap if you put it all in one line however on this for example

Private Sub Form_Load()
TextDisplay.Text = "                             WELCOME"
TextDisplay.Text = "    sffms;vmsffsdfsdfsdfsdfs;vm;sfdmv;sfmv;dfm;vmdf;mdf"
End Sub

it will only display the second line not the first.
yes mutiline is set to TRUE

Did you see the change I made to your code in my first comment?

No. There is no easy way to center text on a regular text box.

If you want to do fancy, use a RichTextBox and you can easily center, change fonts/colors, etc.

Go to my web page and grab a copy of What2Do. It is a simple calendaring app that includes SOURCE CODE that shows how to make a little editor using a RichTextBox.
