Making a new line

My problem is that I have a text box (text1) and i want to make it so when it gets to a certain position it makes a new line and sets it to type there. I have:
Private Sub Text1_Change()
Dim Length
Length = 47
Label1.Caption = Len(Text1.Text)
If Len(Text1.Text) = Length Then
Text1.Text = Text1.Text & vbNewLine
Text1.SetFocus
Length = Length + 47
End If
End Sub
I have a label (label1) for refrence. What happens when i insert this code is that it makes a new line but does not put the cursor there. I CANNOT use a RichTextbox due to security restrictions at the school I do alot of work at. I think that this is an easy question but I cannot figure it out. Any help is apreciated.

Thank you,
Spingk

Instead of:

>>Text1.SetFocus

use:

Text1.SelStart = Len(Text1.Text)

addition:

after setting the Multiline property to true, on the GotFocus event

Text1.Text = Text1.Text + vbCrLf
Text1.SelStart = Len(Text1.Text)
