Report Output to TXT loses character format
Posted on 2007-03-26
Here's a tricky question:
I'm working on a database that has a letter formatted in a Japanese font. This text was copied from Micrsoft Word, formatted in "MS Mincho" font. It gets copied into labels and text boxes in this letter (report).
If I print this letter from Access, it looks great. If I export to PDF or RTF, it looks great. My problem is that my client wants it exported to a TXT file. When I do that, the japanese text converts to boxes and question marks.
I dont know enough about this to be able to figure out if this is a limitation of the TXT format, or if I'm missing some unicode iso-2022-jp add in or something. Is there anyone out there who has some ideas?
