I do not understand what the function Chr(13) is doing in this sample formula:

"Region(s) selected for this report: " & Join({?Region}, ", ") & Chr(13) &
"The order Date Range is from " & Date(Minimum({?Date Range})) & " to " & Date(Maximum({?Date Range}))

Can someone provide some background on the function Chr(13)?

Thank you.

CHR returns the ASCII character associated with the number.

Chr(65) = A

Chr(13) is the carriage return character.  It is simply forcing the remaining text to the next line on the display regardless of other considerations like the width of the text box.
