Hi
  I have some reports created in MS Access, which I want to use in my project developed using VC++. I would like to know if I can open these reports from VC++  and if yes would be nice if I could know how to go about it.

Thanks in advance
Vinitha

automate access and display the reports there.  That would require either a full version of access or the runtime version of access to be installed.  (Run time can be distributed - you need the developer version of office to have a licence for it).

The reports, as far as I know, can not be exported in a format you could use with a home made viewer.

This is probably not an option but get a third party report designer (such as crystal reports) and remake your reports and distribute those with your app.
