My website is in ASP VBscript, hosted on a Microsoft Server. I want to introduce a forum, powered by an Access database. Users submit their messages in a memo field. They are not familiar with html so they cant be requested to enter html tags to render line breaks. Is there an alternative solution to render the line breaks?

Elfynet, You need to replace the line breaks with "<BR>" before storing the memo value in your database. Replace(RS(Memofield1), Chr(13), "<BR>") Chr(13) is the ASCII value for a carriage return. Use the Replace function to replace it with the HTML code for a line break (<BR>). When you display the altered value on your web page, everywhere the user pressed the Enter key will be replaced with <BR>, and the browser should display it properly.
