ASP Q&A: The VBScript NewLine Character

This is the fifth in a series of tips being posted based on the most read posts in one of our ASP Forums. (Previous Q&A)

Problem / Question:

How do you insert a new line when using VBscript? For example in JavaScript you can do the following:

Response.Write ("Here is my sentence .n");

where n” outputs a new line.

What is the syntax for VBscript?


For VBScript, the approach would be to use vbCrLf:

Response.Write ("Here is my sentence" & vbCrLf)

The vbCrLf equates to doing a Chr(13) + Chr(10) combination. You could also use vbNewLine, which is replaced with whatever value the platform considers a newline. On Windows, the result of vbCrLf and vbNewLine should be the same.
