There does not appear to be any way to align both margins of a paragraph using RTF control. Has anyone got code to do this.

There is no way to make a RTF control do what you want, The correct words is "Full Justification" this will make both sides of the text be alligned.  

The only way to achieve this is to Use the Microsoft Control "OLE" and make its .class be a word document.  Then you can format the text inside of the control with any formating you can do in word (such as : Full Justification).  This box will look just like a text box control.

don't need any code to perform this.  Just open vb, drop an ole object on the form, and pick work from the object type.  Put your text in the box, Highlight the text and right click for a menu and select paragraph formating, and change it from left alignment to "Justified",

Let me know if this isn't enough.

Thanks Brad.

I've tried using the OLE object but how do you resize it and save the data you enter.


Thanks

The OLE object seems to determine its own size at run time regardless of the size you  initially create it. At runtime the File menu is not present so how do you save the data?

Use the OLE Save to FILE Statement to save it.
and the resize the control in the Form.Load event.

Make sure to do a DoEvents after resizeing the form.
