64-bit Access converison

Does anyone know how to convert Total Access Memo data from FMS to rich text so we can flip to 64-bit Access?  We have many documents that were created with the 32-bit control.   That is the only issue with converting my application and compiling into a 64-bit accde.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you asked the creator (FMS)?...i don't see much gain is changing to 64bit...but rather you are opening the door to new problems.

Hi John,  

Yes.  "They may have a 64-bit sometime in the future."  I agree on your no gain but some clients feel that way.  This is the only control that prevents making both versions of our FE available.

Thanks,

Bill

I guess that this is somehow related to your other question...so my opinion is that you don't exchange one problem with another...even worse when a product is even not recommended from the company that made it

Yes - it's part of the other issue and we're on the same page.  Maybe this will go away...

Thanks,

Maybe someone has done this.  It is a definite issue.  Let's leave for a bit and see if someone can help convert our docs.  I would like to move away from the TAM control anyway now that Access has rich text.

Probably need to either delete or re-title the question to make more sense.

Thanks,

Bill

From what I know, it's just normal RTF data and the control just makes it easier to deal with that, but I'm not 100% positive on that.

Hi Jim,

There is a text only output but that is not doable as 100s of docs would need to be reformatted.  I'll look at the RTF option again and get back with you.

Thanks,

Bill
