Exporting Data to Other Programs


When you export Access data, you save a database object in a new format so that it can be opened in a different program. For example, you might export a table to an Excel worksheet. Or you might want to save your database as an earlier version of Access so someone who hasn't yet upgraded to Access 2003 can edit, format, and print it. You can also attach any database object to an e-mail message as an Excel (.xls), Rich Text Format (.rtf), Active Server Page (ASP), or Hypertext Markup Language (.html) file.

Export an Object to Another Program


Open the database containing the object you want to export, and then select the database object.


Click the File menu, and then click Export.


If necessary, click the Save In list arrow, and then select the drive and folder where you want to save the file.


Click the Save As Type list arrow, and then click the type of file you want to save the object as.


If necessary, type a new name for the file.


Click Export.
