How to do vbCrLF in SQL

We have a memo field that serves as a scratchboard-type of notes field.  Several command buttons allow users to enter common phrases to the memo field by just clicking on them.
Example:
Me.reqnotes_memo = Me.reqnotes_memo & "  " & vbCrLf & date & "(" & Me.txtinit & ")-" & " Waiting on programming. "

The design is terrible, but for what it is used for- it serves a purpose.  Having said that, here is my question:

I need to have a user add data to reqnotes_memo field in this table from a screen other than the one mentioned above.  So his data will be appended using an update query.  I know how to do that with the exception of the vbCrLf.  How can I do a carriage return in SQL?
