Reports: Send a report via EMail

Author(s)

(Q)    How can I send a report to a client who doesn't have Access installed?

(A)    Access 97 has a new utility called Snapshot Viewer which you can download from Microsoft free of charge. 

    Snapshot View for Access 97

This utility "prints" out your report to a file with a .SNP extension.   This file can be then sent to the client as an email attachment.  All the end user would need is the same utility (no installation of Access is needed) to view/print the report.

The process of sending the .snp file as an email attachment can also be automated from VBA using SendObject method.  Check out the Viewer's Help File for complete documentation.
