Report Gurus: exporting embedded graphics to RTF

We have several reports in an Access application that have embedded graphics.  We need to export these to RTF documents.

When we export, the embedded graphics are lost.

In the past we had been using a "print to fax" product to generate a TIFF file, but this option is no longer available.  Our customer wants an RTF file to replace the old TIFF file.

Any suggestions?

You can try Stephen Lebans' utility here:

Without external software, you cannot retain the embedded lines and formatting etc, unfortunately.

Sorry but your graphic files will not be able to be exported into an RTF format.  The graphics will be lost in the export--only text will be carried over.  You'll have to export the report to PDF or another format in order to get the graphics in your report.

skwilliams: any "how-to" about exporting to a PDF?  I might be able to sell this option.

Note that you'll have to modify the registry rather than the win.ini file if you are using WinNT/2K if you want to do this programmatically. When doing it manually, you simply print to the PDF printer that Acrobat installs.

Excellent thoughts ... too bad you have to buy Acrobat.  I can just see the CFO's eyes pop at the suggestion that we buy 300 copies of Acrobat!  LOL.

I'll see what else comes up.

There are cheaper Acrobat output programs such as PDF Factory and PDF995 - these might be worth looking in to as alternatives.
