Occasionally, you may just want the text and not the rich text format of the RTF field. For instance, you may want the unformatted text on a report, or you may need to export the text to another program that does not support rich text format fields.
Total Access Memo exposes a property called Text. The Text property returns the textual representation of the contents of the Total Access Memo control.
If you want to store it in a separate field, create an extra memo field for it. Use the Text property in BeforeUpdate event of your form, as in the following:
Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer) ' Assign the text representation to the text field TextField = tamDemo.Text End Sub
where TextField is the name of the text field, and tamDemo is the name of the Total Access Memo control.
