      RTF or Formatted Text Output from Filemaker

      Post

           I need to create a RTF file with the following:  I do not need label formatting because a record with two line Job title would mess that up.  Thanks in advance for any help.

      Bold Name
      Italics Job Title
           Company Name

      Bold Another Person's Name
      Italics Job Title with
           Two Line very long title

           Company Name

      Bold Next Person Name
      Italics Job Title
           Company Name

      Bold Name
      Italics Job Title
           Company Name

               I usually export RTF using XSLT, but it's not user-friendly at all. Neither XSLT nor RTF win any beauty contest in hearts of most developers :)

               Sometimes people do the following: they create HTML with all the formatting, save it (e.g. by exporting a single global field) and then open it in Word or Excel. The latter can import HTML pretty well, so you can get a Word or Excel document with some formatting.
