    PRN or Binary (v2000)

    We are uploading an Access export to a mainframe flat file. The format that works best is either PRN or binary. Is there a way to upload formats other than those offered?
    Thanks!

    You can export to a text file and change the extension to .prn after exporting (Access won't accept .prn as extension during export, it will append .txt after it)

    You might also create a printer set to print to file, based on the Generic / Text Only printer driver, and print the report to this printer. It will automatically prompt you to specify a file name. You may not like the result, however.

    I don't think that Access can export a report in a format other than text that a mainframe would recognize.
