Total Access Memo for Microsoft AccessTotal Access Memo for Microsoft Access 97

Add Formatted Memo Fields to Microsoft Access Forms and Reports!

Total Access Memo gives Microsoft Access users and developers the ability to add formatted memo fields to their forms and reports. Enhance your applications by adding support for features such as fonts, point sizes, boldface, italics, underline, bullet points, paragraph alignment, and tab stops.

Easy to Use

Add the Total Access Memo control to your form or report and bind it to a memo field. Press [Shift]+[F2] on the field to launch our editor, and when you finish, it is automatically saved in your table and displayed on your form. You can save and maintain both an RTF and a non-formatted (text only) memo field.

Rich Text Memo in a Microsoft Access form

You can even import text files in RTF format, export the current field to an RTF file, or export to a text only file.

Integrated Editor

Our RTF editor lets you easily enter text and apply the styles you want. Highlight your text and apply the formatting options. The editor also includes features such as Find, Search & Replace, and Spell Checking.

New Features in Version 8.0

Total Access Memo 8.0 for Microsoft Access 95/97 includes many significant enhancements over version 2.0. The control has been expanded to support the following additional features:

  • Direct data binding of the control to memo fields eliminates the need to write code.
  • Several new character formatting options: superscript, subscript, and strikeout text.
  • OLE objects (such as graphics or spreadsheets) can be inserted in the memo.
  • Drag and drop text editing.
  • In-place editing on the form without launching the editor.
  • Paragraph-level tabs (previously, tabs were set for the entire field across all paragraphs.)
  • Enhanced programmatic control with many new properties, events, and methods.

In addition, the editor includes the following enhancements:

  • Uses the Microsoft Access (Office) spell checker, thereby, supporting your language and custom words. (Version 2 only had spell checking for American English.)
  • Localized menus and dialogs for English, German and Spanish.
  • May be used as a regular standalone program, much the same as Microsoft WordPad.
