Mark Turner Posted January 30, 2005 Share Posted January 30, 2005 Two issues: 1) I want to retain text formatting (underlining) on individual words and phrases applied in a text field when that field is concatenated with others in a calculated text field. Is there a way to do it in FM6? 2) I want to retain that word-level text formatting when I export the calculated text field. The exported text will be opened in MSWord. I picked up in another thread, "Output report as a file??" that it's possible to insert RTF formatting codes to format each record. I haven't tried it yet, but the example looked pretty straight-forward. But I don't know that the RTF code technique will help with the word-level formatting. In case it makes any difference, the project is a manuscript for a book, with 1220 records to be formatted and exported. Redoing the text formatting in MSWord will be extremely tedious if I have to do it that way. The publisher has very specific requirements for the way the MSWord manuscript is formatted and delivered. I've gotten everything but the individual word formatting working by creating a big text calculation field that concatenates the contents of several other fields with formatting codes. I read in another thread that FM7 doesn't strip text formatting in calculation fields, but this isn't the time (while overdue on a deadline) to migrate to the new version. Thanks for your help. -- Mark Turner Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
