Flowing RTF export

Last Modified: 2010-04-04
I am currently using Woll2Woll InfoPower's TppReport to print an RTF version of a report in my program.

My problem is that the document doesn't flow in Word.  All the text is placed in small textboxes, so editing the document manually is difficult.  

Does anyone out there know how to accomplish what I want in Infopower or any other tool?  I need a RTF document that doesn't have every paragraph in its own seperate box.

Watch Question

Do you have the Rave Report Designer, shipped with Delphi 6 onward I believe.
The Rave report outputs as an NDR file but the Rave TRvRenderRTF component allows conversion to an RTF file.


Does Rave allow a "flowing" rtf instead of just text boxes?
I have used it for reports that contain datamemo fileds, which support RTF and mail merge. I added the TRvRenderRTF component to one of my existing delphi project forms and when I opted to print the report, displayed on screen, an additional option of an RTF output was offered. I selected this and then read the output using Word, it came out as designed.

I can only suggest that you download the Rave demo software and try it out, this is fully functional whilst used within the delphi development enviroment. The full documentation can be downloaded as well, in pdf format.
