Exporting access graphs HOW ???

Exporting access graphs HOW ???

Can anyone tell me how I can export a graph from Access 97, in an editable format, into either Excel 97 or Word 97.

RE: Exporting access graphs HOW ???

AT least as of Ms. Access '97 this is not part of the Ms. Package.  There are some third party tools which grab the form/report in PDF (or other) format.

The only way I have been able to do this is to set up an Excel workbook with the graph in the workbook and transfer the data to a named range in the workbook.

This works well, except when/where some "dumb" user alters the workbook, so I usually protect myself by having two copies of the workbook and transfering the information to both every time.  This provides the necessary backup/recovery and answers any questions which arise from the "dumb" user's changes.

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over
