Forms, Memos, and Quotation Marks

P: n/a
Hello all,

I'm trying to set up a database to track articles and documents. I've
created a Table to hold the information I need. I've set up one of the
fields to hold the actual text of the document/article. It's DataType is
Memo. I've also created a corresponding Form, mostly for aesthetics and
ease of entering data.

One problem I have is that when I cut and paste some text into the Memo
field of the Form, all the quotation marks show up as bars, sort of like
this: |. If I look at the field in the Table, the quotation marks look
fine. Only in the Form are they messed up. I'm using Access 2003 on a
W2000 system. On another system with Access 2003 and Windows XP I did
not see this problem.

How can I fix this?
