Access Reports to Quark Express

P: n/a
Is there an easy way to export a continuous report with pictures (6 to a
page, all different) to Quark Express for publication. I may need to
manipulate the text and pictures somewhat. Also need to export page headers
and footers.

Thanks

Phil, I doubt there is any direct route here.

What we do for this kind of thing is to print the report to a PDF, and then
use InDesign to process that.

Thanks for that, Allen.

Usual trouble, unless I am missing something that the report exports OK
using CutePDF Writer, but I then appear to have a solid page, rather like a
photo that I cannot edit.

I did have some success outputting the report to word as a series of
editable text boxes, format and pictures were all preserved, and could be
edited within each text box ... but if the length of the text increased, the
text box would over fill and you would loose some of the text

Quark will not import the word file as a DOC, but if I convert it to RTF
some of it will import, but the layout is completely lost. In fact the order
of the pictures on the page seems to get reversed.
