Crystal Reports, RTF and WordPad

I have a Crystal Report (v XI) that save to an RTF at the push of a button on a VB6 form.  It's fine when I open it with Word, but when I open it with WordPad, every cell gets its own line.  I tried changing the formatting in WordPad -- to little success.  

I noticed it looks better when I export a report to a "Microsoft Word - Editable (RTF)".  How do I export it like that programmatically?  What follows is my code:

    rptOptical.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\Optical.rpt"
    rptOptical.ReportTitle = "Incubator " & iIncubatorNumber
    rptOptical.Destination = crptToFile
    rptOptical.PrintFileType = crptRTF
    rptOptical.PrintFileName = dlgSaveRpt.FileName
    rptOptical.Action = 1

Thanx in advance

The metrhod you ae using cannot export to edittable RTF.

You need to use the RDC.

Is that code working?  It looks to be code for CR 8.
