    A somewhat elegant, though lengthy, approach is to use the Microsoft Office
    Document Image Writer, and use the properties button in the print screen to
    select the Advanced tab, and choose TIFF as the output format. Print a
    specific page using this, and place the file in a convenient place. A TIFF
    file can be easily laid into a Word document, using Insert Picture, which can
    then be emailed. Alternately, you could just email the TIFF file, if the
    mail recipient is competent at placing it into their own Word document. I
    tried using the MDI format, and found that most people had no idea what to do
    with it, or they were using a Macintosh.

    I have been trying to email reports and have a different problem. I mostly
    work from a remote location and log on to my access database through a remote
    server. When I preview the report, I can't create a PDF over the network.
    Any ideas?
