Error sending form snapshot from access to email


I am getting an error message when I try to export an MS Access Form to an email as a Snapshot. The message I get is:

"The format that enable you to output data as a Microsoft excel, rich-text format, ms-dos text, or html file are missing from the windows registry"

When I click: file, send to, mail recipient, the snapshot format is not available here. When I export the file in other formats it works, but I want to keep the formatting so I want it in snapshot. Can anyone help, or point me in the right direction?

Hi Susan2c,
An alternative....
Right_click the form in the database window and choose SaveAs. Choose Report from the lower drop down and call it something to tell you what it is.
Send that instead of the form (you could even put a button on the form to do that).  You will now have snapshot format available.

Hi Pete,

Thanks, that seems to work. I thought it might be possible to send the Form as s snapshot, but sending a report will do instead.
