I need the following to have 3 seperate paragraphs.
I've tried a lot of things, nothing works for me.
I'm a bit green to VB, but I cannot locate the proper syntax to put carraige returns and line feeds where I need them.
The example below puts everything on one blurb of text.
(it's part of my complete script, it's this part I need to break into 3 paragraphs).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If strSalesman = "BOB" Then
        Selection.TypeText Text:="As I mentioned, we have an experienced chemical " _
        + "engineer on staff who is available for emergencies or consultations, day or night." _
        + "I am intimately involved with every aspect of our operations " _
        + "planning and quality control.  Our competence and service, backed " _
        + "by thorough supervision on every job, are in the forefront of our industry." _
        + "Our company was founded to service discerning organizations, " _
        + "like yours and if given the opportunity to service your facilities, " _
        + "I will not let you down.  You have my personal guarantee."

        Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="bkrep"
        Selection.TypeText ("Mighty Mouse")
    End If
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THIS IS THE EXACT LAYOUT I NEED:

As I mentioned, we have an experienced chemical engineer on staff who is available for
emergencies or consultations, day or night.

I am intimately involved with every aspect of our operations planning and quality control.  
Our competence and service, backed by thorough supervision on every job, are in the
forefront of our industry.

Our company was founded to service discerning organizations, like yours and if given the
opportunity to service your facilities, I will not let you down.  You have my personal
guarantee.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can anyone help?

Thanks much in advance.

This doesn't work?

Selection.TypeText Text:="blah blah blah " & vbCrLf  _
    + "blah blah blah." & vbCrLf _

Or use chr(13) in place of vbCrLf

I tried as below, did not work.  Also, on the LAST line, how do I get the carraige return/line feed? (in addition to the areas I added the  & vbcr + vblf  _)
(+ "I will not let you down.  You have my personal guarantee.")
As, if I add anything after ......personal guarantee.", I get a compile error.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If strSalesman = "BOB" Then
        Selection.TypeText Text:="As I mentioned, we have an experienced chemical " _
        + "engineer on staff who is available for emergencies or consultations, day or night." & vbcr + vblf  _

Try using the "&" instead of + as connector...
If strSalesman = "BOB" Then
        Selection.TypeText Text:="As I mentioned, we have an experienced chemical " _
        & "engineer on staff who is available for emergencies or consultations, day or night." & vbcr + vblf  _
        & "I am intimately involved with every aspect of our operations " _
        & "planning and quality control.  Our competence and service, backed " _
        & "by thorough supervision on every job, are in the forefront of our industry." & vbcr + vblf  _
        & "Our company was founded to service discerning organizations, " _
        & "like yours and if given the opportunity to service your facilities, " _
        & "I will not let you down.  You have my personal guarantee."

Hello Sir,

  Check the following sample.

strMessage = "The WOL packet was sent:" & vbcrlf & vbcrlf _
   & "Packet Status:" & vbTab & strStatus & vbcrlf _
   & "Broadcast Address:" & vbTab & strBroadcastAddr & vbcrlf _
   & "MAC Address:" & vbTab & strMACAddr & vbcrlf _
   & "Using Interface:" & vbTab & strLocalIP


In the samples already post above, I think it should be &vbcrlf & vbcrlf_      instead of vbcr + vblf_

with regards,
padmaja.

Another method to try...

Dim strMessage as string

strMessage = "blah blah blah " & vbCrLf
strMessage = strMessage & "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah " & vbCrLf
strMessage = strMessage & "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah " & vbCrLf
strMessage = strMessage & "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah " & vbCrLf
strMessage = strMessage & "blah blah blah blah blah blah blah " & vbCrLf

YourControl.YourProperty = strMessage
