Unanswered: Exporting/Saving Reports
I have a feeling I already know the answer to this question, and I've tried to find an answer elsewhere, but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm sorry if it sounds like an obvious question.
I have an Access 2003 database back end on my office's local network, and the end users access it through the .MDE file I have provided them. There is a prevailing gripe that they can not save or export reports, they can only print them.
I thought initially "Well, that's because it's an MDE", but I tried adjusting different user-level permissions in the database, and even as the administrator, I could not export or save a report, as I expected it would be. Unfortunately, these people don't like hearing "Sorry, I just can't do anything about that."
Like I said, I am 99.99% certain this is because it's an MDE file, but I wanted to make sure there is no other way I could fix the problem without giving users access to the actual front end. I suppose it wouldn't really hurt for them to access the .mdb file, since the database is split, and their user group has no permissions to view or edit anything...
