    Print the Design View (office 2000)

    Hello,

    Is there any way to print the Design view of a report? Other than using a printscreen software? Even that doesn't print everything that's not visible on the screen.
    Since the design view shows all of the control sources and layout, I want to print it so that I can archive the setup should there ever be a need to rebuild.

    Thanks,
    Louise

    You can't print the design view of a database object such as a report. However, many screen grabbers have the option to grab the entire contents of a scrollable window, among them SnagIt and FastStone Capture.

    You can also create documentation for a database object using Tools | Analyze | Documenter. You can specify the level of detail you want.

    Hi Hans,
    I use Snagit at home and love it. They don't happen to have it here at the office. I'll try your second suggestion and see how that works.

    Thanks again,
    Louise

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks for recommending FastStone Capture! What a great little utility! It's simpler to use and it costs a lot less than SnagIt. I love it. Just what I needed. SnagIt has a lot more bells and whistles and is still a great program but for a simple capture, I think FastStone is as good.

    Thanks once again,
    Louise
