On an access 2007 form with a text box with text larger than the vertical boundry of box, how do I save the position of the text box so that it doesn't snap back to top of the vertical scroll bar

Hello, I have a database form with a text box that contains a large paragraph memo field which typically exceeds the bounds of the text box.  Is there a way so that if I have scrolled partway through the text box that this position is retained should I click on another form element?  That is to say, is there a way to avoid the default form behavior that 'snaps' the vertical scrolll bar to the topmost position after scrolling through this memo field?
