There is no Rich Text Box Control built into Access. There is, however, an ActiveX Rich Text Box Control that you can use in your Forms and it's called the Microsoft Rich Text Box Control, version X.X. To use this Control in you Application:
  • Insert ==> ActiveX Control.
  • Scroll down to the Microsoft Rich Text Box Control.
  • OK.

I could not find "Microsoft Rich Text Box Control" in the list Is it what it is actually called?

I have Ms 2000 but there is no ActiveX control named simply as
"Microsoft Rich Text Box Control"

In the list, after Microsoft Progress Bar Control, version 5.0 , i have got
Microsoft Scriplet Component

There is nothing that starts with R after Microsoft


Everyone does, from ACC2000 on!

Are you running Access on a personal PC, one in an academic setting or one in a business setting? Sometimes IT departments do strange things in trying to limit what users can do.

I am running fully installed Ms Access on Admin account - there is restriction on any other thing.

If i have every other ActiveX control in the list, why not this one?

Are you people sure you have "Microsoft Rich Text Box Control" - I doubt - i 've checked other versions as well but could not find it

I have found a similar class called : MSREdit Class - not very sure if it is the actual Rich Text Box Control ?

This ActiveX control does exist on the list.

I would suggest you try reinstalling your Office Suite as this should be on your list. There is no reason for it not to be.

I'm using 2003 but I don't see that control on my list either, as far as I know our unit does a full install on everything.

I'm using Access 2003 also, but the control DOES show on mine! Are you using the latest Office2003 service pack and have you checked the References to make sure everyone is using the same version of the ActiveX library? I'm using ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 Library.


Microsoft Rich Textbox Control 6.0 (SP4) is exactly what is shown in my Add ActiveX control dialog box.

Well, here's the reason why you shouldn't use the rich text box control with Office XP and 2003 anyways: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838010.

And yes, I'm using the same library: 2.1
