Somewhat Urgent: Exporting a Report to Snapshot Format in Access 97

Posted on 2004-10-26

I've got a database written in Access 97 and have installed Service Releases 1 and 2 and the snapshot viewer but am still unable to export my report to a snapshot file.  The option is there, and I get no error message, but no file is produced.  Anyone seen this?

    What version of Windows are you using? The was a bug for Access 2000 under 95/98 that did something like this when a graphic was present

    This is Access 97 in Windows 2000 and/or XP.  And I do have graphics (tables with drawn lines) in my report.

    Is there a work-around for the known bug?

    I use Access 97 (Win2k), this works a treat

    DoCmd.OutputTo acOutputReport, "rptMyReportName", "Snapshot Format (*.snp)", "c:\1.snp", 0

    Oh, I get the points again!  It wasn't the drawn lines at all but a bitmap image in the header.  For some reason with bitmap it craps out but it can handle gif or jpeg.

    endless wonders...
