    I have a 500 page report that was created and stored in Snapshot Viewer from a dynamic database on 8/31/2003. I had someone else run the report for me because I was out of town and it wasnÂ’t until I needed the report information that I realized it is sorted by the wrong field.


    I am looking for a solution, short of re-entering all of the data by hand to recreate the information in Excel and resort with subtotals by product category rather than by warehouse.


    Is it possible to extract the information from Snapshot viewer and put it into Excel?


    Copy and Paste the data?


    Or some other means?


    Thank you in advance for whatever assistance you can provide.

    To my knowledge, this is not possible. Have them re-run the query.

    If you absolutely can't do that, then the ONLY method (which sucks) that I can suggest (and it really sucks) is to print it, scan it with OCR software, and open it in Word. (Did I say that it would really suck to have to do that?)
