I am running a SWITCH query on an access table and then using this field in a report.  The data returned needs to be broken into two lines.  Is there a way to make the result set expressed in a two line format by using some sort of a line break...i.e. <br> but for Access.  Here is my current query, the returned data would read on one line "mm/dd/yy (Actual)".  I would like that to be broken into two lines without just using space characters b/c that offsets the center formatting.
Target or Actual: Switch([Actual Delivery Date Value]<>'',[Actual Delivery Date Value] & "(Actual)")

Hi szadroga,

Target or Actual: Switch([Actual Delivery Date Value]<>'',[Actual Delivery Date Value] & Chr(13) & Chr(10 & "(Actual)")

In the report format it as centered


Good Luck!
