Hi...

I am pasting a table from WORD into a RichTextBox and when the text in a cell is bigger than the top cell's size the cell does now wrap the text and the table looks like crap. Is there any way I can fix this. I also tried the dhtml control and it works fine, however it won't accept any objects liek microsoft equation Etc...

So in a few words I need to paste a table of any dimension into a RichTextBox and I need it to look exactly the same. Using VB 6

It is by design.

Take a look at this article from MSDN (yes, I realize it says Visual Fox Pro)
PRB: Rich Text Control 6.0 Displays Word Tables Incorrectly (Q257287)

What component should I use then, because de DHTML component works fine with tables, however it won't accept data form microsoft equation object. Or should I use a Word document directly on my VB form, because I have no Idea how to do that?

chebas.. I have done this using Excel.

What happens is that,you mark your cells,copy them and then paste it in the Rich Textbox control.The copied table is gets converted into an image which you can use as you like.

If this is what you want..lemme know..Il post the way it happens.
