Unanswered: Problem Importing Access memo fields to Excel
I am trying to import MS Access into an Excel spreadsheet using the Excel "Get External Data" from either Access or the Data connection wizard. No matter what I do when the data is imported into Excel the two fields that are Access memo fields import along with all their format characters.
Whats the answer to getting just text????
Added at 1:40: I don’t get it? I have tried numerous ways of importing this data and I always get the format characters, yet, I can copy the data out of the Access table and paste it into Excel with no problem???
i.e. <div><font face=Verdana size=3><strong>Contact Center Program</strong></font></div>
<div><font face=Verdana><strong>CHAMP Integration Project </strong>(includes the PICCT Project and the Seibel On Demand project efforts): <strong>Release 1</strong>:
