Truncated fields when export to .rtf

I am trying to export a report to a Word document.  I "Publish to Word" resulting in a .rtf formatted file.  The database is composed of Software Problem Reports (SPRs) numbered with originator, titles, etc. and a Problem Description.  The prob descr field is a memo field.  When I pull a report out of the table containing this data, and publish it using Word (my customer needs an electonic copy of the report and they don't have Access), the problem description field is truncated occasionally.  I have had some print up to 450 - 550 characters, and then no more.  Am I doing something wrong?  Is this a problem with Access going to .rtf  ??  Anybody have any ideas?

If you're using Access 2.0 there is a known bug that the memo field will be truncated if it spans multiple pages. There is a KB article on this - don't have the number on hand.

Could this be a possibility?
