What do you mean by stripping "RTF"? Do you mean how to preserve the font size/color/font/whatever?<BR><BR>How would you know what it's like in the database? AFAIK, db fields do not preserve fonts and the like.
I have returned data from this database and the majority of the memo fields have RTF in them. My thought is I would look for the RTF statement at the beginning of the RTF string, and if this is true run the function that strips the RTF, if not leave the string alone.
