Convert FMS Memo data into MS Access 2007 RTF Memo

Posted on 2008-10-24

I 'd like to upgrade an Access2003 application into Access 2007.
In Access 2003, there are some FMS Memo Controls and associated memo fields in the database.
I replaced FMS Memo controls with Access 2007 RTF text boxes and it's working fine.
I could save memos in RTF Format and retrieve them in the same format when required.

The problem is that the new Acces 2007 Memos are unable to display previous memo data  inserted by FMS Memo controls in Access 2003. It displays data as follows:

\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Arial;}}
{\*\generator Riched20 5.50.99.2014;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\kerning36\fs24\lang4105 1) In order to comply to Clause A, it must be clear that they are ordering the product or that the bartender clearly knows them.\par
}

How we can display the data inserted with FMS Memo controls into the Access 2007 RTF Controls in it's original form without those tags and unwanted characters?

Please help me.
