Saving Access table data to RTF Format

I want to SAVE access 97 database table records  as  RTF format or
word document. So How can I do it with Visual basic code.????/
There is a function called Transfer database. But not good enough is there any other way of doing it?

You can export it into a text file, then import it into Word.  Will that do it for you, or are you looking for some kind of repeating dynamic process?
Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

what about to a html document, word97 reads them?

Yes, I am looking for some kind of repeating dynamic process.
if you are trying to do this in VB then I can only think of creating a recordset clone and manipulating it that way...I would probably drop an RTF (or text) control on a form, along with the data control and in the code do something like the following

dim rsRecords as recordset, intRecCount as integer

set rsRecords = me.datacontrolname.recordset.clone
intRecCount = 1

with rsRecords
  do until .eof
    me.RTFcontrolName = rsRecords("FieldName")
    me.RTFcontrolName.SaveFile bstrFileName:="FileName" & intreccount
end with

do it manually:

- Query the database
- Create a new text document and write to it with RTF code, then save it as "xyz.rtf"

txt = "{\rtf\qc" _               ' this is a RTF document
& "{\b\fs12 " _                 ' bold, fontsize 12
& rec!MyTableField _       ' from your database
& "}}"
Open app.Path & "\xyz.rtf" For Output As #1
Print #1, txt
Close #1

- Create a RTF document in word, open it with a text editor.
Have a look for other available formats than 'bold' and 'fontsize'.
