How to preset cursor position in an Access textbox

Last Modified: 2013-11-28
As user enters (tabs into) a large textbox, the cursor needs to appear at the END of the text, rather than at the beginning of the text.

Normally, all the text is selected (highlighted), and the cursor is flashing at the beginning of the contained text.  I need to automatically move the cursor to the end of the text, then add a vbCrLf, as if I were to click the mouse pointer at the end of the text, then hit 'Enter' to start a new line.

 Is this possible?  How?
