How do I get the formatted results of a query with a subdatasheet to Excel?  Needs to be emailed so I need it in Excel.  I want the reader to be able to collapse the summarized totals of the query to see the details in the subdatasheet.

Will if you export the report in Snapshot view, will it still allow the expand/collapse capability?

No, snapshot view is just that...it's non-interactive after that. You can however export as html then you can open it in excel. I do this when I want to keep the report formatting. I wrote a code module that exports my report as html, renames it as .xls

Give that a try and let us know if that's what you're after.

Saving it as html is an interesting idea, although it doesn't really save all of the formatting.  The color and any bordering applied is gone.
