Saving RTFData

I found an old post that recommended to save a styled text field’s data using two fields in a database - one for the plain text and one for the style. I’m trying to understand the reasoning for this. Is it only for searching purposes? Or is there another reason?

Thanks

The operative word in your post is “old”.
Use RTF data as suggested.

I use two database fields, just like the old post. Indeed, one is for searching, the other is for generating styled output. If you’re not searching the database, then you probably only need to store the RTF.
