sometimes (but not always) at the end of my multiline textbox there are carriage returns created... how can I remove trailing carriage returns?

something like:
MyString = Replace(MyString, vbCrLf, "  ")
and Rtrim (MyString, 1)
combined?

-2 is because vbcrlf is infact 2 characters

... how would I be able to figure out if the last character is indeed a carriage return?... (so it will only remove it if it's there... and not cut into the actual string.)

that will replace all the carriage returns in the text... this is in a multi-line textbox.
I only want to remove trailing carriage returns at the END of the string.
