create a RTF file
In order to produce reports one of the possibility is to generate a file rtf (Rich Text Format). This format brings a great flexibility indeed and is easy to implement. The DypsRTF component allows the generation of a file format rtf with the flight.
An RTF file consists of unformatted text, control words and groups. Rich Text Format (often abbreviated as RTF), to surprise of many, is quite complex text data format. During its long history RTF bought a lot of add-ons that disturb the process of getting "clean" text. Let's try to solve that...
I am using a third party application to get a report. There are 2 download options.PDF and Fully Editable RTF. If I choose the RTF option, the report can be viewed in MS Word as Read Only,
I am looking for a VBA solution to bring this data into Excel from the open Word view.
Is there a way to convert an Excel sheet into an RTF file? I was hoping that'd be one of the available file types for the Save As option, but it's not.
There's an RTF clipboard data type, but nothing for Save As. That seems weird to me, a bit. It's one of those things that you don't notice until/unless you need it.
I have pdf's that I need to get into excel. I've tried 100 different ways of converting into many different formats/file types but inevitably something gets screwed up. I am able to get the PDF into a rtf & Doc format where all the data still is organized into a table "looking" format (ie all the columns are lined up). When I try and copy it into excel, some cells get merged, others separate into multiple cells and generally I am left will too many problems to fix manually. I've tried to import the data but it turns into gibberish (I think because its not ANSI).
Ideally I would like to import the data into excel (or use an outside program first) and use the fixed width function but excel can't read the files when I do this.
Hopefully I have made some sense.
