We're trying to use MS-word as an OLE object in our reports(throug the
OLE/Insert new object in IM) to show complete RTF documents (fonts, bitmaps,
text...) from the database (long varchars). This worked fine with one
particuar version of the English MSword and not with the Norwegian one!?
The Norwegian MS Word puts " before and after the plain text representing
the RTF doument and shows all the RTF tags "{/rtf"...

Any suggestions for a soultion or another RTFviewer than MSWord?

Thanks - OT!

I don't know of a fix for this. It's a common problem that OLE isn't
language aware. You might want to check with Microsoft to see if they have
a patch for this.
