I am trying to save data from nultiple rich text boxes to the same file.  It is only writting the data from the first box out.  When I write the data as text instead of textrtf, then all of the data is outputted, but without the bolding,italic, etc.  This is the code that I am trying to use:
Open "mytext.doc" For Output As 1
        Print #1, RichTextBox3.TextRTF
        Print #1, RichTextBox1.TextRTF
        Print #1, RichTextBox2.TextRTF
        Print #1, RichTextBox4.TextRTF
    Close 1

Any help would be appreciated.

Try something like this:

Dim S as string
S=rtf1.textrtf
Put #1,,S

Ummm, RTF isn't a simple format. It starts with { and ends with } and I don't believe that it supports multiple files concatented. You can combine the data all day long, but the multiple preambles are going to *kill* you.

You need to create a 5th RTB that you'll use to concatenate the contents of the other four (you can have the .Visible property = False so the user won't see it.). Select all of the text from each of the other boxes and paste, in sequence, into your 5th box. *THEN* you save the contents of the 5th box to disk with:

Public RTFFile As String    '.RTF file name
SaveFile RTFFile, rtfRTF  'Create file

This should work. Let me know if you need more detailed code on the appending of the text.

Wait until you try to figure out how to *PRINT* them! You can set the left and right margins and that is *IT*. It will print multiple pages without page numbers or headings. It does print nicely tho, just doesn't give you any formatting control.
