In 'another' mdb, File: Get External Data: Import..., select 'one' mdb, and select the report.

or

Click once on report, copy, select 'another' mdb, paste

Bear in mind that if the underlying data is not the same between the 22 db's, they will not be exactly the same.

Whichever process you use, make sure the VBA code behind the report copied over, and you will need to make sure the report's RecordSource exists in the new mdb

I was figuring that I'd have to do some "tweaking" of the copy to make sure it runs in the new database...  but they're already very very similar in their structures, so hopefully that tweaking is minimal.  Can you elaborate on the RecordSource?

Drag and Drop.  Have both Access databases open side-by-side and drag the report from the first DB to the second DB.

In your report, go into Design View, right-click:Properties, Data tab, and eyeball what's in the Record Source.  It will be the table, query, or SQL statement that feeds data into your report.   You need to make sure that this exists in your 'another' database, either by creating it, or importing it as well from your 'one' database.
