I know only two objects, which have a scroll bar, one is the "floating frame" and the other is the form control "text box". But the "floating frame" is buggy (It does not print, for example), so I do not recommend it. The form control "text box" can be used without data base, if you write the content directly. In the form control properties, you can enable the text type "multi-line with formatting" and you can select the type of scrollbars from the drop-down list Scrollbars. The scrollbars are not shown in edit mode, but when you use the text box.
