Finding Text in a Text Box

I am looking for code or VBX that allows a user to use an inputbox to locate a word within a textbox. The textbox is connected to a Access 2 table memo field. Can you help?

How about this simple piece of code:

Dim strInput as String
Dim i as Integer

strInput = InputBox("Enter a string to search for:")

For i = 1 to len(txtTableMemo)
   If mid$(txtTableMemo, i, len(strInput)) = strInput Then
      MsgBox "Found the text -- doing whatever with it."
      Exit For
   End If
Next i
This is the simplest method for looking in a single text box or string. On average, it will only search half of the text in the txtTableMemo box.
