I have inserted a file (a MS Word signature block, 5 lines)into an Access table field as an OLE object.  From the table, I produce an MS Access report with other regular type data and the bound OLE object. The report is complete and displays the object in MS Access, but when I export the report in Rich Text format, the exported report is not complete - The OLE object did not survive the export. What can I do to export the complete report from Access so that the OLE object is also exported?

Try to use the .snp format.
Check:

It will give all report info...

nico538,

Thanks, I had forgotten to mention that the receiver of my exported document needs to edit the report/document after I export it (edit is only for the non OLE object data).  I had tried snapshot format, and the object is right on the export, but it appears that the document is no longer editable.   Is there a solution that allows edit?

Not "straight away" that I know of, but why use in this case a report?
You could use automation or MS Word mailmerge to create the document.

Idea ?
