line break in access form command button caption - how do I do it?

hi all,

this has to be simple but my brain is on strike today (Sunday morning) ...

How do I get a line break on the caption of an Access form command button?

Try using <ALT> 010 with numLock on when editing button text.

Never heard of that one before but it works brilliantly.  Definitely accepted.

Out of curiosity, in case I'm ever working on a laptop without a side keypad - is there some sort of "\n" or something which would give the same effect?
I did this on my laptop using the m-j-m keys (with alt) after setting NumLock.

BTW-ascii 010 is the same as \n (line feed).  Non-printing ascii characters can be invoked in text using
<ALT>-(ascii value) with NumLock on. &#9562;

thank you!
That's very cool about the ascii. Now I can show off with French accent marks in my emails, :>)

Sorry, I should have waited before accepting your answer, then I could have added some points. My bad.

no problem.  I'm not hungry.
