The first comment on this answer about the "Complicator's Gloves" is a good read... I'm not the original author, but I think it's well worth sharing as I found this problem to be very complex and without a concise or widely useful answer.sometimes the answer to a problem is to approach it differently. The following regex will catch widely used number and character combinations in a variety of global phone number formats: Positive: 42 555.123.4567 1-(800)-123-4567 567 7(926)1234567 (926) 1234567 792612345567 9261234567 1234567 123-4567 123-89-567 469 123 45 67 89261234567 8 (926) 1234567 926.123.4567 415-555-1234 650-555-2345 (416)555-3456 2 4035555678 1 4 Negative: 926 3 4 8 800 600-APPLE Original source: I believe the Number:: Phone:: US and Regexp:: Common (particularly the source of Regexp:: Common:: URI:: RFC2806) Perl modules could help.HTML formatting is quite different than RTF, you may need to perform some adjustments manually after conversion, and have old databases preserved for later reference.If you have MS-Word properly installed on the system, it's recommended that you choose MS-Word to perform the RTF2HTML conersion during database replication.Given modern hardware resources, it is unacceptable that we can't yet routinely communicate text in different scripts or containing technical symbols. After reading a lot on the subject and incorporating Unicode compatibility into some of my software, I decided to prepare this quick and highly pragmatic guide to digital text in the 21st century (for C programmers, of course).I don't mind adding my voice to the numerous articles that already exist on this subject, since the world needs as many programmers as possible to pick up these skills as soon as possible.MS-Word fully understands the RTF specifications and performs almost perfect RTF2HTML conversion.my Base 6.5.1 provides the option allowing to invoke MS-Word for RTF2HTML conversion while replicating databases.
font, style, size, color, alignment, indentation, spacing, picture, etc.), not all RTF control words will be exactly converted.Validation text lets you provide a message to help users who input data that is not valid.When data is entered, Access checks to see whether the input breaks a validation rule – if so, the input is not accepted, and Access displays a message.If you write an email in Russian and send it to somebody in Russia, it is depressingly unlikely that he or she will be able to read it.If you write software, the burden of this sad state of affairs rests on your shoulders.Given the variety of human languages on this planet, text is a complex subject.
