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.

Actually, i disagree with the previous answer. In one of VBPJ early numbers this year, there was an article concerning this issue. As we all know, Access has a built-in report generator that's definitely one of the bests in the market, and that's enough reason to make all the efforts to try to access its services from other apps. Speccially when they are bundled with report engines like the one we know from VB...
For more info please search the VBPJ web site: www.windx.com.
hope it helps...
