You cannot import any access report into VB.  Nor can you convert them.  You can print the reports from VB, by using the Docmd.openreport   method after you establish a reference to the database.  Other than that you will have to create them in VB from scratch.

Speccially when they are bundled with report engines like the one we know from VB...

hope it helps...
