Hello All
I have a query that gets the complete Street Address with Apt #  of Address Line 1 and also the complete Street Address with Apt # of Address Line 2. and then on a 3rd line the CSZ

Now what I want to do is to display that Line 1 and line 2 and Line 3 in a Control Textbox and IF Line 2 is not null show Line 2 on a new line and if Line 3 is not null show it on a new line.

Right now in my control source I have

=[AddrL1] & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & IIf(IsNull([AddrL2])=False,[AddrL2]) & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & iif(ixnull([CSZ])=false,[CSZ])

I also tried it as
=[AddrL1] & IIf(IsNull([AddrL2])=False, & Chr(10) & Chr(13)&[AddrL2]) & iif(ixnull([CSZ])=false,& Chr(10) & Chr(13)&[CSZ])


Is there a different way to do that instead of chr(10) & chr(13)  right now those aren't working in my situation

Your syntax is a little off.  Try this:


=[AddrL1] & IIf(IsNull([AddrL2])=False, Chr(10) & Chr(13) & [AddrL2], "") &  IIf(IsNull([CSZ])=False, Chr(10) & Chr(13) & [CSZ], "")

May be better to set it to:
=[AddrL1] & IIf(IsNull([AddrL2]), "",Chr(10) & Chr(13) & [AddrL2]) & iif(isnull([CSZ]),"",& Chr(10) & Chr(13)&[CSZ])

Also,  if you are dealing with a report, you can use separate textboxes for each line with the Can Shrink property of the textboxes set to true.  (This won't work on forms)

This works if you have no other controls in horizontal alignment with these textboxes.
