You have to use the text property of the RTF.
You have several solution to add it in your notepad :
1: Use the Clipboard
     Clipboard.Clear
     Clipboard.SetText rtf.SelText, vbCFText
   After that, you can paste the code in the notepad

2: Use file. Save the text to a file, and load that file in the notepad

Don't forget to select the needed text to save.
rtf.SelStart = 0
rtf.SelLength = Len(rtf.Text)

   nFile = FreeFile
   Open sFile For Binary Access Write As #nFile

   Put #nFile, , rtf.SelText

   Close #nFile

nFile = Freefile :
 It takes a new free handle when opening/writing to a file.
