Re: emailing an indented report

The Indented Descendant Report must be launched to a Text Editor program in Rich Text Format. First do the Print setup tasks of selecting a path to your Text Editor.

You can automatically launch the file to Winword.exe with Microsoft Word selected, or, by selecting Other, automatically launch to WordPerfect, or Wordpad.exe.

You CANNOT automatically launch the file to the UFT Text Editor for e-mailing purposes. You can deselect Automatically Launch UFT Editor and send an Indented Descendant Report in RTF format directly to the folder of your choice. This can then be an e-mail attachment.

You will get various styles of reports by using the various exports. Some look better than others. You can worry about style later.

If you automatically launch to Word97, Wordpad, or a version of WordPerfect that supports E-mail, you can export your e-mail file attachment directly from these programs.

You can also save the report to file from any Text Editor in RTF format and then open an e-mail program and send that file as an attachment.

***But once you have finished manipulating Print Setup, return to the Individual Record of the person you want at the top of the Indented Descendant Report. Click on Reports. Then click on Indented Descendant Report. Then click on Preview or Print.

Good luck,
