Create a blank database and do a File - Get External Data - Import of the form.
Email the small mdb to whomever and they can then do a File - Get External
Data - Import to add the form to their database.

There is no way for them to have the functionality of forms without having
either retail Access or the Access runtime support installed. There are a
number of ways to give them a picture of the form... start with the PrtSc
key and save it in some image form that you choose. Or, you can save the
form as a report, save the report as HTML and let them look at it in their
browser -- the HTML save seems about as close to the actual report as any of
the non-Access formats.

I was not able to view the logo or any other graphical infos like
line, is there any way to view them. I also want to know how to attach
mutiple reports.
The problem is the report to be attached differs on customers, it's
not a constant thing.

Please advice me

As much as possible use a report instead of a form. Also, I would
recommend that you use a PDF file. This uses the Acrobat reader which
is pretty much the universal file format. And it preserves all of the
graphics. Nearly everyone has Acrobat on their system.
Take a look at ...

Personally, I have used the open source Redmon/Ghostscript approach
with good results. How to here...
