Microsoft Snapshot viewer

I'm trying to find a way to output a Access97 report to a file without
losing any of the formatting. The Microsoft Snapshot Viewer does this
perfectly but the person opening the file needs the viewer loaded on
their PC.
What follows are the ramblings of a network novice.
Currently my company has two types of PC's in the shop. The PCs at
each machining center run on a NT server (I: drive) and the office
machines run on a shared Novell server (S: drive)

The shop PC's are locked down to prevent changes to the Image. I've
had my office PC mapped to both drives so I can transfer the .snp file
to I: drive but I'm told the shop PCs cannot have the Microsoft
Snapshot viewer loaded on them.

The question I have is: Can the viewer be loaded onto the NT server
only and a shortcut placed on each of the shop PCs that would look
something like this?

"I:\snapshot.exe I:\MyFolder\MyFile.snp"

If this is the wrong forum for a question like this please point me in
the right direction.

TIA, Rick

No; the viewer has to be installed locally.
