How do I insert a chr(13) or vbCrLf in a Query expression builder.

I have a query that contains 3 fields with varying strings.  I added an expression to combine the values of all three fields, seperated by a carriage return.  Problem is when I use chr(13) or chr(10) I get a box instead of the carriage return/line feed.  When I try vbCrLf, the query prompts for user input.  Is there any way to accomplish this?
