A REPORT? What would be the purpose? You can copy the report into
another database, or link to the query that drives the report, but I
don't think you can "export" one.

Maybe you could explain what you're trying to do so someone coul dtell
you the proper way to do it? I find more often than not people
request the craziest stuff just because they don't know any better.

You can Import it.
From the database you wish to import the report into, click on
File + Get External Data.
Select Import.
Navigate to the database that contains the report.
Click on the Reports tab.
Select the report.
Click OK.

Of course the report won't run properly unless you also change it's
record source to a table or query in this database that has the same
field names.

Hi,

I have created a report for one of our customers on my local machine
using a copy of their DB. I had a copy of their DB on a USB drive,
but now realize the DB itself is too big to send via email over to
them. So Im looking for a way to send the new report to them without
having to send the whole DB with it. I am not sure if this is
possible.

Thank you for your time and thought.

btw, Im a from Boston, congradulations to your Colts this year. Still
gotta like Manning even though he's the enemy. =)

Sincere Regards,

Ray
