Lebans Rich Text Control LDB/Locking Problem

Hello,

I'm experimenting with Stephen Lebans' Rich Text Control for doing RTF
data entry into a memo field.

I imported the table, form, toobar, and modules from the A2k version
into an A2k3 DB. Then I edited a sample table record using the sample
form provided, then closed Access.

Then I could not re-open the MDB containing these items, nor any other
item. I observed that the LDB file is not going away, and that Access
has to be closed with the Task Manager.

The sample form's RTF2 control is bound to a text

I have to have the RTF control bound to a memo field in a table like in
Mr. Lebans' example, and I saw Stephen's post/suggestion about using an
unbound field.

Is there a way I can make the MDB etc. work properly so the LDB file
goes away on close like it is supposed to do??

If a form field is unbound, how do I get its contents into the correct
table record/field??

Thank you, Tom

You need to set a Reference to the RT2 Library instead of just importing a
Form containing the RTF2 control. Other than that, I have never heard of
this issue before. Try deleting the RTF2 control, edit the Memo field and
see if the issue still exists.

Hello, I had already set a reference to RTF2, everything worked, etc.,
it was simply that after editing in the sample form etc. that the LDB
would not go away.

I found a different solution though.

I took Stephen Lebans' sample database, imported all my forms, tables,
etc. etc. into it, tried editing things again, and the ldb problem went
away, I think for good. So we still don't know what caused it, but this
was my particular cure.

Now I hope my end users will like it.

Thank you, Tom
