Problem with Sendkeys

I have a text box with multiline set to true.
I put multiple lines of text in it

For example:
In Form2.Text1 I have:
Line1
Line2
Line3

Then:


Then I set focus to another text box on a different form and use sendkeys like this:
Form1.Text1.SetFocus
SendKeys Chr(34) & Me.Text1.Text & Chr(34)
"Line1

Line2

Line3"

It's inserting and extra return between each line.
Any body know how I can solve this problem.
I know Sendkeys isn't the best thing to use, but  it does fit with my situation


Thanks!
Cheers!
