I use Access View Query T-SQL procedure to retrieve data. I need to insert multiple texts into a field concatinating 'carriage return'(Line break) or Newline characters. How do I specify these characters in a T-SQL Query. Any Help would be appreciated.

Will something like this work:

set @myfield = 'HELLO ' + Char(13) + Char(10) + ' World ' + Char(13) + Char(10) + Char(13) + Char(10)

Use the text data type.  Then you can store formatted text, form a richtextbox or something of the like.
