Does anyone know if Access has a feature or if anyone has created an add-in program to import/export report items (specifically labels) from a report to an Excel sheet? My reason to want to do this is to send the labels (in English) to our Chinese colleagues for them to translate into Chinese so I can import them back into a new report that will be used there.

Thanks.

Dennis, you can export a Report to Excel, but I don't know of any way to Import Excel in to a report, But you can Import the Excel translation in to a Table.
To Manually export the Report the Help says -

To Load the output of a table, query, form, or report into Microsoft Excel

In the Database window, click the name of the datasheet, form, or report you want to save and load into Microsoft Excel. To save a selection of a datasheet, open the datasheet, and then select the portion of the datasheet before continuing.

On the Tools menu, point to Office Links, and then click Analyze It with Microsoft Excel.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To use VBA to send a Report to Excel use the

DoCmd.OutputTo method

But I am not sure how well the formatting is preserved using the VBA method.

The formatting is not preserved going across the two pretty much at all.
I would suggest you have the label(s) exist as separate table(s) and then put them in your report as sub-report(s). That way, when you get the translated version back, you can have that in a separate table (with the font set to the Chinese formatting you need) and make that table the sub-report that you use for the header.

why not use the transfer spreadsheet option (IN Macro or VBA) to export the source table/query of the report? Then use the same method to import it back in?
