Multi-line text box - can't get it to work in Access 2003

Multi-line text box - can't get it to work in Access 2003
Views: 66
I'm using Access 2003. I'm trying to set up a multi-line text box on a form where the user must have control over where the line breaks occur. I've set the "Enter key behavior" parameter to "New Line in Field".

However, after keying the first line and pressing the Enter key, Access is treating it as a completion of the entry and tabbing to the next control.

I've also tried using Shift + Enter and Ctrl + Enter, but with the same result.

Access 2007 on Windows XP

I am not seeing a property setting to enable a horizontal scroll bar for a text field.

And also I need to disable the control from doing line wrap.

Basically I want Access to display the text as-is and do no reformatting.

I have set my font to a mono-space font, so that point is successfully covered

Multi-value Unbound Combo Box

I've read a few posts that state it is not possible to have an unbound multi-value combo box (Access 2007). Many of my bound forms have multi-value combo boxes, and I understand many programmers dislike them as they break some formatting standard rules (or so I've read). Anyway, I have no opposition to them since they work fine for the applications in which I've used them. Is it truth, myth, legend that they cannot be unbound? Is there a way to hardheadedly code this possibility into existence?
