Default Exporting reports with embedded images

Hello everyone,

I would appreciate some advice on how to keep an embedded signature image (or two) within a report that is exported as an rtf file. It seems to be lost during the export process and I have to manually insert the image after the export.

Thanks,
Karen.

If you send the report as an .rtf type file, all of the graphics associated with it will be nuked. This includes lines, shading, etc.

I get around it by sending the report as a snapshot (.snp) file type. Snapshots retain all the graphics. The only negative is that the end user who receives the e-mail will not be able to edit the report.

Try e-mailing the report to yourself in both formats and see the difference.

Hmmm... I would see that as a positive. Other than you, no one should be able to edit the contents of a report. In fact, in Access you edit the data via a form, you never edit a report. Report is output only.

The snapshot viewer is one of the optional bits of the the Office 2k & XP installs. You'll need to check with your IT people to see if it's part of your standard PC build.

If not, you can download an installation file from microsoft - it's a tiny download, and takes about five seconds to run.

I have a snapshot viewer on my Windows '98 system here at work. I thought it was a standard package.
