    I've looked around the net, but haven't been able to find a decent answer.. Can anyone tell me if its possible to export a single record in form view as an image? either jpg or pdf..

    I've got a database that has text placed over the top of a background image and would like to be able to save/export different records including all their data as an image file.

    Im using Access 2003.

    In one word NO! not automagically
    But you can use a photo editing tool to take screen shots or snapshots & use them

    "Maybe" :D ... Try PDFCreator ..
    But instead of Printing to a pdf file .. Tell it to "Print" to a jpg .. Or another Image type of your choice.
    I think you'll be able to choose a higher res than a screen shot would provide.

    Damonw, click on the form and Save As and select Report. Reports can be Saved as PDF - see this Article

    You can also save Reports as SNP images which can be veiwed with the free Snap Viewer that comes with Access or downloaded from MS Office.
