access97, snapshot creation fails with visible image on report

P: n/a
I have a report with a image displaying our company logo
if I create an snapshot of this report, it appears to create an 'snp'
file, but nothing is stored in the folder

I tried both linked and imbedded

if I make the image invisible, the snp file is created as required

since I would like to distribute reports using the snp format and I
need to show the company logo on the report, is there a fix for this ?
or a workaround ?

In Access 97 I believe you have to avoid any image in the Picture property
of the report itself and when using an Image Control you have to keep the
file under a certain size (forget what the size is though). Experiment with
a smaller image file and see if the report works.

This is a known issue. Convert the Logo to Bitmap format and embedd it
in the Image control.

If you can load the image into the standard Image control then there
should not be an issue.

same d/b, new report
1/4" left and right margin, 8.5*11 landscape, no logo, just lots of
columns (ie. it doesn't even fit on 8.5*11 landscape but thats ok for
now)

export creates a 200k file, but opening shows a blank document, yet
there should be 3 pages

same file size, same blank document if I change it to 8.5 * 14
landscape (which allows all the columns to fit)

why blank ? other 8.5*11 landscape reports export properly..
