rich text formatting on form's textbox


I have a textbox setup on the form which allows rich text formatting. So the richtext formatting is to "allowed" in the form property window as well as in the table.

The problem is.....for texts that have a strikethrough line, the line is not shown on the form.

How do I get around this?

Any thoughts/comments appreciated.

Re: rich text formatting on form's textbox

Access rich text is not as full featured as Word.
You can use the rich text formatting controls on the ribbon to find out which rich text features are supported by Access. You will see that Strikethrough is not supported.
