Report Copy Fails when Run on Windows XP

P: n/a
Perhaps someone has experienced this problem. I developed an Access 97
Runtime database on a Windows 98 SE machine. I have three reports that
can be optionally copied to a floppy disk or hard drive through use of
a macro: Output To, Report, the name of the Report, Rich Text Format,
Output location and file name, and Auto Start - No.

The process has worked flawlessly when running the macro on Windows 98
SE under Access 97 SR2b on the host machine as a .mdb and also after
being compiled as a .mde and also in Runtime. Additionally, the macro
has run successfully on another Windows 98 SE machine in Runtime with
no Access program installed.

However, after installing the Runtime version on a Windows XP machine
the macro action, for all 3 reports, failed. Why would this happen? I
have decided to change the process from a macro to VBA code instead.
Other than doing this, I don't know of any other options to pursue.

Your assistance in this matter will be appreciated. Thanks, Dalan
