Make {body} field visible in Access report?

City Desk would be a perfect fit for a project I have at work if I could only figure out how to make the body field visible, or readable in an Access report.

I'm not a programmer, but I'm not a complete newbie either.  Can anyone give me fairly complete instructions on how to do this?  Thanks.

You can create a very simple template:  Only the {$body$} variable.  Make your template produce .txt exension.  Then, you can import this text file into your access db using Access Import tool.

Just add some code to your report that fills in the fields using the following code:
