Why Total Access Memo is the right solution for Microsoft
Are you developing Microsoft Access applications where users want
or need to store and edit rich text? Is the Access memo field
limitation of one font and size insufficient?
Total Access Memo
gives you a royalty-free redistributable solution for your
rich text formatting needs.
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.
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

contents of an ActiveX control on your form or report. The Total
Access Memo spell checker ensures you save text without typos.
Not all of my application's end users have Microsoft Word
installed, so I can't use that for my rich text needs.
Total Access Memo is a complete rich text solution--a control,
editor and online help--that is full redistributable to your end
My users may have Word installed, but I don't want to have to
bind my memo fields to Word and write a bunch of Word/OLE code. My
users need an editor that comes up quickly and doesn't rely on Word.
Total Access Memo includes a fully functional pop-up editor, with
menus, customizable toolbars, and online help. Simply press Shift-F2
from a Total Access Memo control and the full screen editor appears.
It can be maximized to fill your screen. When finished, the updates
are automatically saved in the Access field.
When I try to deploy the Microsoft rich text ActiveX control, I
find all sorts of problems: version overwriting, control
registration, incompatibilities between RTF 2.0 and 3.0 controls,
Total Access Memo includes a single program that you can
redistribute: this program automatically installs and registers the
Total Access Memo control, along with the editor and help file.
Deployment couldn't be easier.
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.
