    Publish to Word Truncates fields in reports (Access 97)

    Hello Access Gurus,

    Can anyone explain why fields get truncated when Publishing an Access report to Word? An most importantly is there a way around this?

    Cheers,

    Jocelyn

    Unfortunately, exporting reports to RTF (Word) is one of the weaker aspects of Access; it has been so from early versions, and apparently the developers at Microsoft aren't interested in improving it.

    The only (crude) way I know of to get around the problem you describe, is to make the text boxes on the report larger than is necessary in Access itself.
