RTF output not identical to Snapshot output?

P: n/a
I am using Access 2000.

I produce several reports which print records including long descriptions.
When I send the output to a snapshot file or direct to the printer the
output is correct. When I send it to an RTF file, the description lines
drop some of the final words in some cases. The output always has the same
number of lines, but each line seems to be slightly shorter, or maybe the
characters are slightly wider, so that words which fit on a line in snapshot
format get transferred to the next line. If the last line is full, the last
word or two won't fit and get dropped.

How do I prevent that from happening?

I need the RTF output so that it can be incorporated into a Word document,
which contains other information as well.

Welcome to the club.
Sometimes wider margins help.
In your case, consider using Automation to add the data directly to
Word.
