Displaying HTML on a report

P: n/a
I have an Access database that holds a catalog and one of the fields
contains the HTML for the web page. The HTML code is very simple. I would
like to be able to display that HTML output on an access report. Is there
some kind of control that I can embed into the report so that I can see that
HTML?

Thanks,

Mike

I have never found a method/control for directly displaying and printing
HTML on a report. What you could do is use a hidden Web Browser control
on a form, load it up with your HTML, copy the contents to the
clipboard, ask the Clipboard for RTF, and then set an RTF control's
RTFtext prop on your Report.

I've been wondering about using the RTF control. Maybe I should generate an
html report and just shell out to explorer to open it up. Access is not
quite the right tool for that though.

In the meantime, I'm getting by with the text reports.

Thanks,
