How do I add carriage returns to text that goes into a textbox?

I want to display the results of a query in a rather odd way.

It would read something like this in a single cell of a table...

Smith, John
C-PA
10

from some sort of concactenated string that would read like this...

=tbl_All_Lname + ", " + tbl_All_Fname + "\n" + tbl_All_Position + "\n" + tbl_All_NumHoursWorked

My problem is that I want to put those \n as actual carriage returns inside the cell of that table.

actually, better is char(13) + char(10) , but otherwise I agree

Let me say that this is an expression inside the cell (right click on cell, choose expression).

When I try the above I get

The Value expression for the textbox ‘tbl_All_Fname’ contains an error: [BC30108] 'Char' is a type and cannot be used as an expression.

Chr(13) works.

Correct.  That is the VB.NET function that returns a soft return (Cr) as opposed to a hard return (CrLf) and equivalent of T-SQL's CHAR() function.  In C# you can use "\n"
