I want to be able to type in several rows of text in a single cell.
There are no "cells" in Access. That is a spreadsheet concept. Access is a
database that has columns (fields) and rows (records). You should never work
directly in the tables, although you can work in datasheet view in a form. A
data in a field in a form is represented usually with a control, which can
be a textbox, combobox, etc.
Now to more directly answer your question. A textbox can display multiple
rows of data (1 record). You can turn on text wrapping by adding a vertical
scrollbar from the property sheet, or you can use the shift + enter or ctrl
+ enter key combinations or VBA code to add a carriage return to the data.
