How get to the beginning of a text field via code

I am using the following code to add a comment to a text field.  But I want the now comment to be at the beginning of the field.  Is there a way to force a [Home] key so the new comment is at the beginning?

Me.txtComments = Me.txtComments & vbCrLf & Me.txtNewComment & vbCrLf & DLookup("[CurrentUser]", "LOCALtblCurrentUser") & " " & Now() & vbCrLf

I think you just need to change the order of your code.

Me.txtComments = vbCrLf & Me.txtNewComment & vbCrLf & DLookup("[CurrentUser]", "LOCALtblCurrentUser") & " " & Now() & vbCrLf & Me.txtComments

Generally, I think it is bad practice to add new comments to a comment field.

I prefer to have a separate table for the comments, so that each comment is a single record, which can be displayed in a continuous subform.  With this technique, you have the added option of being able to prevent the users from changing previous comments, to preserve a comment history.

Jeff.  Thanks.  That did it.

Dale, I agree and normally do it that way.  But in this case the "simple" method will be just fine.
