Rich text box in Access forms?

LBryant

Is there any way, in Access 2003, to offer rich text input without modifying the registry. I'm in a corporate environment where that is not possible.

When a RichText control is added to a form, I see this:

'Microsoft Access Dosen't Support this Active X control.'

I've tried using the WordPad ActiveX contol which works, but its messy and confusing for the users.

Anyone have a solution for rich text in Access 2003 in Windows?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the resource Nic;o)

I sent him a message asking if the installer has to modify the end-users' computer registry. In my corporate development environment, I can't do that easily. :o(
