RTF2 Control -> MS Word

P: n/a
Hi!
I'm using the RTF2 Control from Lebans web site with MS Access 2000.
It's working very good. Now i want to create a letter with the
formated text of the RTF2 control in MS Word 2000, but it shows all
the code inside and not the formating ... I'm not using vba-code, i'm
making the letter by hand (as a serial letter in Word with the
Access-DB as data source).
How can i create a letter which looks like the report in Word? Is it
possible and if, what do i do wrong?

Thanks a lot for your help!
Marion Neubauer.

If I understand you correctly you are manually creating a letter in
MSWord and want to copy and paste the contents of my RTF2 control from
an Access Form into your WOrd document. Have you tried simply selecting
all of the desired text , right clicking to to bring up the context
menu, select COPy and then paste thsi into your WOrd doc?

No, i did not copying the text. I created a serial letter as usual in
word.
First I selected the table with the text of the RTF2 control in my
access-db as the datasource for my serial letter.
Then i put the field with the text of the RTF2 control field in the
document.
Afterwards i wanted to see the formated text (serial letter preview)
but it shown me the code of the rtf2 control :-(.
I hope i could tell clearly what i have done. Sorry about my bad
English ...
Best regards and thx for your help,
Marion Neubauer.

Since you are working from within a MSWORD doc I would suggest you
should post this question to a MS Word NG. I'd be interested to hear of
any solution you get.

Hi!
I found a solution, not very elegant, but ok - i stored the data of
the RTF2-Control in a text-file and opened this text-file with word.
Now Word showed the formated text :-). Now i have to program this way
in VBA, but i think that shouldn't be a big problem.

If you find a better way, please tell me anytime :-).

Thx and BR,
Marion Neubauer.
