Crystal Reports software is an application commonly used by accounting and business firms to design and generate data reports from various sources and programs. These reports provide clear, organized snapshots of statistical, graphic and numeric information. Save, share or modify this data by exporting Crystal Reports into Microsoft Office Word documents.
Things You'll Need
- Crystal Reports Viewer Software
- Microsoft Office Word (97-2007)
Open the Crystal Report generated from your data program. In the upper left corner, click "Export." An action window opens.
Select the drive or file you want the report saved to. Use the "File Name" field to name your report. Select "Rich Text Format (*.rtf)" from the "Save as type" drop-down menu. Click "Save."
Click "File" on the top left of the .rtf document. Click "Save As." A new action window opens.
Select "Word Document (*.doc)" from the "Save as type" drop-down menu. Click "Save." Your Crystal Report is now a Word document that you can modify and share.
Tips & Warnings
- When exporting Crystal Reports, you will not initially have the option to save as a ".doc" Word document. Although ".rtf" files have similar functionality, be sure to follow steps 3 and 4 if you require the ".doc" format.
