    Question Unanswered: Outputto rtf and controlnames

    I am attempting to create letters and simultaneously save the letters (in a prescribed path and format) for later retrieval. I'm creating the letters using an access report and saving via "outputto" to an rtf format.

    The problem: the control names "text29" etc. are showing up in the body of the exported rtf file. Example: "Very truly yours,Text29:".

    Is there an option or argument to prevent the field/ control name in the report from showing in the export?

    Thanks much,

    Matt Wilcox

    Red face Figured it out...

    Oh, man....

    When I created the text boxes the full width of the page, the "label" of the field got hidden behind the text. It never shows up - except in an .rft export. And it shows up in various places within the text box contents to really confuse you. All I had to do was shrink the text box, click the exposed label control and delete it.

    Mystery solved.
