before asigning the text property, just read one line.
I don't know how each line is separated each other but:


as example:

dim buff as string ' that should holds the receiving data

buff = mid$(1,buff,instr(1,buff,chr$(10) + chr$(13), vbtextcompare)

text1.text=buff

It hasn't.  I thought you would be interested in the sample project code I put there though.
