Microsoft Access HTML Viewer

I have a field of text written in html and stored in a memo field.
instead of displaying in a memo field, i would like to see it
presented as html (as you would in interent explorer)

is there any easy way of doing this?

thanks in advance for your help

Depends on your version of Access. In A2010, the new rich-text
control makes this quite transparent. Before that you had to use the
non-native web browser control, which works fairly well but has some
quirks (and can only display a file from the file system, not an
arbitrary stream of HTML).

While it is true that you can not bind a Web Browser control to an
Access data source as you can with a Rich Text control. You do not
HAVE to point the web Browser control to either a file on the disk or a
URL on the internet.

The Web Browser control CAN accept a stream of html in the
BeforeNavigate2 Event.

wb.Document.Open "text/html", "replace"
wb.Document.Write strHTML
wb.Document.Close

Been using this code for years in an old VB6 app that builds the string
strHTML above from data pulled out of an Access database.

Damn. I didn't know that. I'll have to try it in the app of mine
that makes the most use of the web browser control (and writes to a
temp file).

You learn something new every day, and in this case, it's for
something I've been doing for better than half a decade!

I'd like to add my thanks to David's, and for much the same reason.

And silly me, I didn't even say thanks!

So, here it is:

Thanks very much, Ron, for pointing this out!

Guys

Thanks is absolutely not necessary. I thought that this is what the
newsgroup was about. Hardly a week goes by that I am not learning and
pilfering code from another's post. Also you gotta' know I did not
invent this, I can't remember any of the details, but you can be sure,
I stole if from somewhere!

Can you share more code? I'm getting Document = Nothing in object passed to event, so Document.Open is not working.
Thanx
