Add Rich Text Memo Fields to Your Microsoft Access Forms and Reports

Total Access Memo lets you add rich text format (RTF) memos to Microsoft Access with sophisticated editing and spell checking. Our super-easy data binding means you can display rich text on your forms and reports and store it in your tables.

Give your users the ability to add text with different fonts, point sizes, fonts styles (bold, italics, underline, etc.), bullet points, tabs, paragraph margins, indentations, alignment, spacing between paragraphs, color, graphics, hyperlinks, etc.

Place and Bind Total Access Memo Fields on Your Forms

Total Access Memo is simply another control on your form and can be bound directly to a memo field from your form's RecordSource.

Redistribute Your Solution

Do you want to include rich text capabilities to an application you distribute to others? No problem: Total Access Memo includes a royalty-free distribution license so you can add rich text memo fields to your database and give them to non-Total Access Memo owners.

Industry Standard Rich Text Format

Total Access Memo supports the Microsoft RTF standard for compatibility with Microsoft Word, WordPad, and any other RTF-compatible program.

Pricing and Availability

The latest version supports Microsoft Access 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, and the 32-bit versions of 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, and Office 365. An older version is available for Access 97 which supports a different ActiveX format.

32 Versus 64 Bit Versions

Since ActiveX controls are either 32 or 64-bit dependent, the 32-bit version can be put on your Access forms and reports, and used by users of Access 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, and the 32-bit version of Access 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and Office 365.

The 64-bit version of Access 2010-2019 requires 64-bit ActiveX controls and cannot use the 32-bit version. A 64-bit version is under development and expected to ship in Q2 of 2021.
