Access report export: colors lost in HTML (and Word)
Posted on 2004-10-13
I have an Access2000 report with some colored text (the coloring is added via conditional formatting of a text box). When I export the report to an HTML file, the colors are lost and the text comes out black. How can I make the colors show up without post-processing the resulting HTML file? Or, if it must be post-processed, any hints for how to do that would be appreciated (I've been trying to avoid VB/VBA in this project for a variety of reasons, but I'll bite the bullet if I have to in order to work around this "feature").
Using a different output format (e.g. PDF) is not an option for this appliacation; it has to be HTML (I tried using Word as an intermediate format, but the colors are lost when going to Word also, and it has other bad features as an intermediate format in this case anyway).
Thanks in advance for your help.
