Is there any way to convert an RTF file into a graphic file of any sort? I'd prefer a TIFF, but I figure that if there's an easy way, it'd be a BMP. Anyone have thoughts for me?

Just to be clear, I'd prefer doing it with straight VB code if it's possible.

dcmacleo, this question is probably in the wrong topic area.  I'm familiar with a lot of computer graphics, but I don't know of any way to convert an RFT file into an image file, other than to make a screen capture of it. I'll look around for you, but you might want to delete this question from topic area and repost it in the Graphics (general) topic area.

No thanks. I'm writing an application in Access, and I want to convert an RTF into a TIFF or BMP or any other raster format. If someone has even an inkling as to how to do that, please let me know.

Oh, OK, this is better. (You could see why it would like your question is in the wrong area.) Will try to research this out with you. I'd like to know too.

OK, I think I have everything you need. If you'll send me an e-mail address, I'll send you a zip file with the text file explanation, code, appropriate .dll's and so forth. I found all this in an article by Ben Campione who lives in Florida. In June 1999, he published an article called "An RTF-To_BMP Convertor" in Windows Developer Magazine. The text file containing the article also shows something about how to get to .tiff.  The problem Mr. Campione had was to make this conversion specifically for an Access database, so this probably is what you need.  

This was an interesting problem, but I can use the answer too.

Thanks for all your effort on this Pam. I'm wondering where you go to do these types of searches? Any particular locations that stick out in your mind as the best place to start searches for issues like this?

My email is dcmacleo@vertari.com

Thanks again,

No, I didn't do anything special - just a lot of persistance with Google.  But I do a lot of graphics, as well as Access, for a living, so I may be able to skim through the results more quickly and more quickly narrow the search when it comes to this particular topic ... that all. Have been playing with computer graphics since God made dirt.  Relatively small zip file is on the way to you.
