Why this is the right solution
for Microsoft Access users
If you need to view, edit or store rich format text in Microsoft
Access, Total Access Memo is for you!
I want to
add text with different fonts, point sizes, styles, paragraph
justification, bullets and pictures, but Access doesn't support
Total Access Memo supports a full set of rich text formatting
options. You can have multiple fields per record and an unlimited
number of records. Rich text can be added to your forms and reports.

Plain text is dull and boring

Rich text makes it easier to emphasize and understand important data
I tried to use the Microsoft Rich Text ActiveX control, but I found that
it doesn't bind to my data correctly without programming. Plus, it offers no
menus or toolbars to make text formatting possible, and I can't spell check
- Total Access Memo supports data binding just by setting one
- You don't need to edit only in the control. Simply press
Shift-F2 to bring up the Total Access Memo's built-in editor
which opens as a separate, maximizable Window. From there you
can edit your text in full screen with toolbars, menus, and
online help. When you finish, the rich text is saved in your
- Microsoft Access's spell checker cannot spell check the
contents of an ActiveX control on your form or report. The Total
Access Memo spell checker ensures you save text without typos.
I tried using Microsoft Word to embed rich text into Access tables, but I
found that writing the VBA code was just to much work. Plus, the performance
was slow, Word doesn't work on reports, and if another instance of Word is
open and waiting for the user, my application freezes.
Simply place a Total Access Memo control on your form, point it
to a memo field in your table, and your ready to go. Total Access
Memo also works on reports without the need to use Microsoft Word at
all. Because the contents are stored in standard rich text format,
you can easily copy and paste between Total Access Memo and Word.
Total Access Memo is multi-user compatible and supports multiple
simultaneous instances on your machine or across your network.
My reports need fonts, color, and formatting within a field. I want to
include integrated charts, images, and hyperlinks. Microsoft Access just
can't do this.
Total Access Memo supports all these capabilities on reports:
fonts and formatting within text, integrated charts, graphics, and
active hyperlinks all with one control.
Using Microsoft Word or the Microsoft RTF control is just too limiting.
Total Access Memo gives you the rich text experience you
want. For $299, it pays for itself in development time savings
alone. Plus the free unlimited royalty-free redistribution
rights make it even more cost effective so you can distribute
your work to non-Total Access Memo users. All backed by FMS, the
leading provider of commercial Microsoft Access solutions.
