Can anyone explain how to use the top margin command...

I have used txtbox.TopMargin = 1 but it does nothing whatsover but when i set the top margin on the properties it works fine.  I therefore assume the syntax is not correct but it does not error?

This measurement is in "Twips" if you want to use it in code.
1 Inch=1440 Twips

So try using 1440 instead of 1 (in your code)

Yes, it is funny.

Every once in a while, (when I am in a rush), I forget too...

Odd how you can enter Inches in the property box, but MS expects you to "magically" know, not only about twips, but also somehow know how they relate to inches... (1 in=1440 twips)

It is mentioned in the help files (albeit at the very end...)

Glad I could help.
