Is It Possible To Export Access Report Definitions?

P: n/a
Greetings,

two of my users have the same front end db (A2K). Each of them has
created, in addition to the standard reports, a personal customized
report. Now they both want to be able to run both reports.

Is there a way I can export a report definition - not the report and
not the data - from one user to another, or do I have to manually
re-create for each guy the other guy's custom report? I know you can
do it in Crystal Reports and FileMaker, but what about MS Access?

Thanks,
Yisroel

If I understand correctly, you can create a blank mdb and use File->Get
External Data->Import to import any object from another mdb.

Yes, but you have to import the report into the new DB rather than
export it from the old one. Open the database you want to import the
report to and select Import from the "File - Get External Data" menu.
Use the file dialog to select the DB that has the report. Once you
selected the DB a form will appear that allows you to import any DB
objects.
