The user can pick multiple selections via check boxes. All the selections are put into one field. When they are entered into the field the selections are put one right after the other. What I would like to do is find each carrige return in the field and reploace it with 2 carriage returns this would put a space between inputed selections. I can use the position function to find the first carriage return but it does not work well for me for the rest. Any Ideas?

First, it sounds like the field in question is a number field. If you convert it to a text field, multiple selections will be separated by a carriage return. To add an additional carriage return, create another layout and place the unformatted (no check boxes, etc) field in question on the layout. Enter Browse mode and click into the field to select it. Under the Records menu, select the Replace option. In the box where you can specify the replace contents, enter the following:
