Running Windows Professional 2000 with Office 2000.  Have Access 2000 and Access 97.  Under Access 2000 Reports can be saved as type .snp and can be Output to acFormatSNP.  Under Access 97 Reports can not be saved as type .snp or Output to acFormatSNP.

Is there a Snapshot module that can be loaded for Access 97 to create .snp output.  All documentation identify the solution is to upgrade to Office 97, SR 1, but this is not an option.

You need SR-1 installed.  See the following MSKB article:

Hi Jim.  I think anything posted within two minutes of the last posting can be considered "simultaneous".

Hello Jim
    Did not find the SR-1 for Access 97 at the Link address.  How would I search, "Access 97 SR-1"?

Hello Mike
    The link address points to the SnapShot Viewer.  I need the module that "Creates" the .snp output from Access 97.

If you read down the article a bit, the link for the Office Download area:

http://www.microsoft.com/office/downloads/default.htm 

is under the "More Information" paragraph.

As an addendum, after that page comes up, click on "Office Updates" and the top of the page.  A new page will popup where you can indicate the product and the release.  All files available will then be listed.

Thanks Jim .. The Office 97 SR 1 must be downloaded, and updated even though Office 2000 is installed.  I kept looking for Access 97 SR1.

Jerry,

Also, please note that the snapshot viewer provides the capability to view AND create snapshot files.  It also comes with an ActiveX control which can be embedded in an Access form (or even a VB form) for viewing the snapshots from within your own applications.

Regards,
Mike
