    Unanswered: Report -> Word

    Hi,

    I have an odd problem exporting Access 2003 reports to Word 2003 (rtf format). When I do so with a footer in my reports, sometimes the text in the report form gets jumbled up in the footer in the end Word RTF file.
    This only happens about 5% of the time, and I'm using expandable boxes in the Access report, because the text fields vary in size.

    Is this a bug in how Word is interpreting Access's reports ? or perhaps I'm missing something.

    Thanks.

    No, it's not a bug. Put simply: the Access export to RTF SUCKS if you have much formatting beyond the basics - and forget about graphics. You're pretty lucky it works nicely 95% of the time.

    Perhaps Snapshot is an option for you? It's kind've like PDF, only it's meant for Access and the viewer is available for free from Microsoft (also on Office install cd's).
