Saving a .txt file as .rtf ...

Guys,

For reasons I won't bore you with, my little VB app needs to create 3 versions of a compiled 'string' based file

1. a .txt version
2. a HTML version
3. a .rtf version

No problems with 1 & 2 ... but the .rtf version is causing me a problem.

I'm compiling my string-based document and saving it using FSO ... cheekily just changing the extension ... but the .rft 'knows' it is not true .rft ... that is having a knock-on effect for what I am actually using this for (pre-designing Autosigs. in Outlook, if you are interested)

Anyone know how I can save a .txt file as 'real' .rft ??

Thanks,

S.S.

One option is setting a hidden rich text box in your form, copying your text there and then call richtextbox1.SaveFile "filename.rtf",0

This sounds wicked - but I actually wasn't being totally truthful in that I'm using an Access/VBA application and SaveFile isn't available ... am looking for alternatives !

:(
