I have text fields in a record, that display on forms for
the user to enter and update. Problem is, I need some
formatting that text boxes cannot normally provide: the
minimum is bold, underline, maybe even a font change; I
can't even get a TAB to store in a text box.

yes, I need a freeware RTF control, that works with both
Access 95 and 97, and I need it FAST! If you can point me
in the right direction quickly, I can close this one out
quickly!  Thanks.

yykes, I don't think I've seen any freeware, sorry you'll have to reject my answer

and besides that if you're wanting this stuff printed, I'm not sure how that would work, since I've never used them
