Storing Rich Text and using in Access and Word

Discussion in 'Access Forms Coding' started by Jeff Freilich, Jun 20, 2012.

  1. Hi All

    I am using Access 2000 and MS Word 2003

    I have a database where I store information in Memo fields and then
    during a comlplex report generation process it writes information to a
    word document.

    My client now wants to add formatting (bullets and hyperlinks etc.) to
    some of the text stored in the memo field in the access database.

    I can go into word and edit the text as needed, save as RTF and copy
    and paste that information back into my access database. I do not
    have a need to actually edit the RTF inside of my access database - I
    am cofident that what I copy and paste from my RTF editori (notepad)
    that I can get the correct RTF into the database

    My question is how can I get that RTF back in to word during my report
    process - currently I simply read the text from the field and drop it
    into word in the correct place as needed - I would like to be able to
    do something similar with Rich Text so that the formatting gets put
    into word as well

    Any thoughts on this please let me know

    Thanks for your assistance

    Jeff

    If you think I should post in a different group instead please let me
    know
