The formatting of text in a RTB is stored as tags much like in HTML.  You can access the data in a RTB in two basic ways:

    Dim t As String
    t = RichTextBox1.Text() ' Retrieves only the text in the RTB

    Dim rtf As String
    rtf = RichTextBox1.Rtf ' Retrieves the text in the RTB along with all formatting information

So all you need to do is store the return of RichTextBox1.Rtf in your database.  To put the data along with its formatting back into the RTB you just set the string retrieved from your database back into the Rtf property:

    RichTextBox1.Rtf = rtf ' the string retrieved from your db that you placed there before
