The code is making string "constants" for CarriageReturn(Cr) and LineFeed(Lf).

You can just use the built-in VB constants:

or the two together:

Instead of vbCrLf, you can also use:

If you could just translate what those two strings would be that would be great
These are the most direct equivalents

        Dim return_val As String = Chr(10) 'converts ascii characters.
        Dim hardreturn As String = Chr(13) 'converts ascii characters

And this tests them

        MsgBox("a" & return_val & hardreturn & "b")
