Exporting a report to RTF

When you have a report open, you can choose to export the entire report or a specified set of pages to RTF format. The appearance of the exported report may be different from the appearance of the report in the DHTML Viewer.

If you export a report that is densely populated with controls to RTF, Microsoft Word can take a long time to open the file. For example, opening a large RTF crosstab report in Microsoft Word can take several minutes.
