rich text format

I am reading from an access table some fields, such as prices, dates and other info, i need to read these information and put it in a rtf textbox like a word processor to generate an letter form from these info. I have not done that before so can somone guide me in easy steps. I use VB6, DAO and Access 97, if it is easier to put everything in MS Word please explain how.

thanks
