Dear Experts:

A user is prompted to enter a string into the InputBox. Is it possible by means of entering a code such as vbCrLf or ^p (directly in the inputbox field) to separate the string into two paragraphs.

I got a workaround (worked out by Graham Skan, EE) with which I am able to enter a specific number of words (of an already existing string that has been placed somewhere) after which a carriarage return is entered.

But now I wonder whether this can be effected right while the text is entered into the InputBox.  

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas
