If you are getting the report that you want by running it through Word97, then save it from Word and send the attachment.
One of the difficulties that the UFT programmers face is that they are currently maintaining several different formats of RTF export, plus a version which goes directly to the printer. This is done in order to support various versions of Word, Wordperfect and other editors.
Use the one that works best for you.
If the person you are sending the report to does not have a Text Editor, you can automatically launch the report to file (RTF) with the UFT Editor, insert the notes, and then paste the result to Wordpad. Most everything but the Headers, Footers and page numbers will come through intact. -john
