I have created a Microsoft Access Report, with a number of elements in it. These include labels, controls, lines, boxes, etc.

When I export the report to Word, it loses all lines, borders, boxes, etc. Is there a way to keep these elements in an export?

Exporting to PDF is fine, but I need this to work in a Word export.


No. Access only exports to Word in RTF (Rich Text Format). Therefore, it only exports the "text", not the formatting or objects. According to Microsoft:

When you use the Access Export Wizard to export the data from an Access database to a Word 2010 document, Access creates a copy of the data in a Microsoft Word Rich Text Format file (*.rtf).
