 Interface INGRES (ascii files) to WORD or RTF format
Hi all,

Does any one have any solution, or/and experience in converting ASCII
files generated from CA-INGRES data, to MS-WORD (word or RTF format).
It may be a tool to converting ascii to RTF format or a solution to go
to word document with stored "styles" in the document.

Thanks in anticipation.

Georges Dumoulin.

Yeah, I had a bash at doing that once. We had a need for an Ingres based
application to print "pretty" formatted output to HP LaserJet printers,
and thought that we could do it by generating RTF and then passing it
through an RTF to HP/PCL filter. The RTF bit was pretty easy - the spec is
fairly straightforward, and is on the net somewhere, but the RTF-to-PCL
was a real pain. In the end we went about it a different way: generated
PCL "templates", and then used code to insert strings into the template.
Worked fairly well, but not much good for free-form documents. I'd suggest
that an RTF-to-Postscript approach would work fairly well, if you need to
go directly to the printer, or just generate RTF if you're merely sucking
it into Word. That's my $0.50AU worth anyway (the Oz dollar ain't what it
used to be)
