I have a large amount of text for terms and conditions I want to add to a subform. Is there a way to create a text box that with a scroll bar? I want this option so that I can contain the text to one page. Also this text box needs to be in a sub form so that it does not appear till a yes response is selected from a radio button.

Also is there a way to search the forums for key word? I have tried several differnt search boxes and they all seem to look at the entire web site.

The issue I was running into on a scrolling text box was where you actually place the text. You do not place it on the item in the form. You have to place the text in the "Text Field" object. It is not as you would assume it is. You have to copy your dialog data and paste it into the Objects properties box that appears on the right of the application. You will want to be on the Value Tab and place your text in the "default box" It does not make much sense as to why they designed it this way and the default box is so small you would not think it could accomadate large amouts of text. It did the trick for me though.

Hope this works out for you let me know if you need more help.
