Title

Importing records with styled text.

Post

I have a database one of whose fields contains text which is coloured differently in different records to indicate specific information.

 

Having found a set of these records I need to import them into another database (which has the same field names set up); it is essential to maintain the text colours.

 

Selecting all and copying in the first database and then pasting in the second does not work: if you select a field the entire set is dumped into that field. If you don't select a field nothing happens.

 

Exporting as ASCII text and importing  loses the text colouring.

 

How do I achieve this?
