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.)

Text1.Text = Left(Text1.Text, Len(Text1.Text) - 6) & MyString

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.
