Hi Dan,

     When using a Memo field in a Base form, one can have multi-line
text in it. I know how to specify this . The problem is with another
property of the Memo field: what each line ends with for OS X. Unix uses
a Line Feed to end a line, and Windows uses Carriage Return and Line
Feed in combination. According to what I have found, OS X uses Carriage
Return. The first two choices are available in Base, but I don't see a
Carriage Return as a choice. Is it possible that when OS X sees the
Carriage Return-Line Feed combination that it acts as if it only sees
Carriage Return?
     I would like to get some feed back from someone using OS X.

You should be alright with the Unix variant, it is what I have used in
the past.

However, testing on : Version (Build ID: 45c86d8) on Mac
OSX with a MEMO LONGVARCHAR field in a hsqldb database has just shown
this not to work...i.e. :

I created a multi-line control corresponding to the MEMO field, chose
Unix LF and vertical scroll bar. Saved the form, then opened the form in
data entry mode.

Added some multi-line text with carriage returns. Tried to save, either
by moving from one record to the next, or simply saving the entered data
- nothing happened, the data I see on the screen in the form control is
not written to the underlying field.

Will have to investigate some more...
