Tech Tip: How to save a 4D Write area into an RTF document with a method
PRODUCT: 4D Write | VERSION: 6.5 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: June 22, 2001

If you want to save a Write area as an RTF document programmatically
using the command:

WR SAVE DOCUMENT (areaRef;docName;docType)

You must pass "RTF " as the desired file type (note space at end to make it four characters long - corresponding with Mac file type). For example:

WR SAVE DOCUMENT (WriteField;"test";"RTF ")

Will correctly create an RTF document containing the contents of the Write area.
