I working with an exisitng access application that has a memo field on the of the forms.  The problem is the user adds a lot of information into the memo filed and it comes out all messy.

Is there anyway to format the text?  I saw something called Total access memo which will add formatting.

Is this something I need to buy?

    Hi Bill ,
    Total access memo is  a program by fms & costs $299
    I suggest you have a look first at Lebens RichText which is free.

    Good Luck!
