Multiline msg box

I have this msg box I'd like to make:

Full Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Must reside within 25 miles of the club.

Associate Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Lives outside of 25 miles from the club.

Senior Member - A member 65 or older that has 5 contiguous years of club membership as the last prior 5 years.

Junior Member - A member that is under 18 on January 1st of the next year.

Family Member Under 18 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home and is under 18 on January 1st of the next year.

Family Member Under 21 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home and is under 21 on January 1st of the next year.

Husband/Wife Member - Members that are legally married.  Couples cohabitating are considered individual members.

This is what I've tried but vb doesn't like it and I don't know why.  I get the compile error: expected end of statement but everything looks correct.

MsgBox "Full Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Must reside within 25 miles of the club." & vbCrLf& _
    &vbCrLf& "Associate Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Lives outside of 25 miles from the club." & vbCrLf& _
    &vbCrLf& "Senior Member - A member 65 or older that has 5 contiguous years of club membership as the last prior 5 years." & vbCrLf& _

    &vbCrLf& "Family Member Under 18 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr& _
    &vbLf& "and is under 18 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf& _
    &vbCrLf& " Family Member Under 21 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr& _
    &vbLf& "and is under 21 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf& _
    &vbCrLf& "Husband/Wife Member - Members that are legally married.  Couples cohabitating are considered individual members.", vbInformation, "Membership Definitions"

Thanks,
Ric

You have missed out spacing before and after the concatenation operator(&). Also you have some consecutive ampersands (at the end of a line, and then on the next line). Try this:
MsgBox "Full Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Must reside within 25 miles of the club." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Associate Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Lives outside of 25 miles from the club." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Senior Member - A member 65 or older that has 5 contiguous years of club membership as the last prior 5 years." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Junior Member - A member that is under 18 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Family Member Under 18 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr & _
    vbLf & "and is under 18 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & " Family Member Under 21 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr & _
    vbLf & "and is under 21 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Husband/Wife Member - Members that are legally married.  Couples cohabitating are considered individual members.", vbInformation, "Membership Definitions

Graham,

Your last quotation mark accidentally wound up outside of the code box.

No points for this correction, please.  The last comment should have been:

MsgBox "Full Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Must reside within 25 miles of the club." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Associate Member - A member 18 or older not living with parent.  Lives outside of 25 miles from the club." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Senior Member - A member 65 or older that has 5 contiguous years of club membership as the last prior 5 years." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Junior Member - A member that is under 18 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Family Member Under 18 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr & _
    vbLf & "and is under 18 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & " Family Member Under 21 - A child of a Full, Associate, Senior, or Husband/Wife member that is residing at home" & vbCr & _
    vbLf & "and is under 21 on January 1st of the next year." & vbCrLf & _
    vbCrLf & "Husband/Wife Member - Members that are legally married.  Couples cohabitating are considered individual members.", vbInformation, "Membership Definitions"

Well, you know I had to try them both and of course they both worked.  I guess my eyes are getting tired and didn't see this(better then saying old).

Thanks,
Ric

Thanks again mbizup.

Joppa,
Your eyes are OK.
The code worked without the trailing " because a VB automatically appends one at the end of the line if there is an odd number of string delimiting quotes in the text.
