Default Set memo field text format via VBA

I would like to set the text format property of a table field that is dbMemo. Using the GUI I can set "Text Format" to "Rich Text". How do I do this using VBA?

I have no problems creating a dbMemo field.

        Set f = .CreateField("Note_RtMemo", dbMemo)
        ' this fails . no such property
        f.Properties("TextFormat") = "Rich Text"
        ' this fails . no such property
        f.Properties("Text Format") = "Rich Text"
        ' this has compile error
        .Fields.Append f

Welcome to P2P. Am I missing something? I don't know about Access 2007 because I don't have it yet, but Access 2003 and before don't allow rich text formatting in memo fields at all. Which version are you using?
