Publish reports with charts in WORD

P: n/a
Hi,

I produce a 30 page report that has data and two charts per page, using
Access 2000. My boss wants the report in WORD format. When I use the
"office links" to "Publish it in Word" I get all the text but not the
charts. Any Ideas??

In terms of native Access, then you can't use the Publish To Word because
the published report is converted to Rich Text Format (rtf)which, as its
name indicates, is a text format, not a graphics format.

You could convert the report to a snapshot file (.snp).
Your boss will need the snapshot viewer to look at the report. I think
this can be specified as part of any ms-office installation,and is
certainly installable with Acc2000 onwards. It also used to be
downloadable from MS but all the snapshot viewers have now been withdrawn
by MS.

Other options that you have are to buy a pdf writer, either full blown
Adobe Acrobat/Distiller for hundreds of monetary units or something like
pdfFactory for a few monetary units. This is installed as a printer and
you just select it as you would any other printer.
You boss would use Acrobat reader to read it.
The final option you could look at will be found here:

There are some free utilities which you can test for your specific
reports.
