    Default Sending Report as Attachment

    When I try to send a report as either a text or rich text attachment A5 prompts me for a name to save the file and then does not open the mail window. It works fine for PDF or HTML and will automtically attach the file and opens the mail window. I am selecting the text or rich text attachment option from the Print Preview window of a report. I am using the far right button that allows you to send the report as an attachment. It seems to only do that for PDF and HTML.

    Thanks

    Dave

    are you running under win 98?

    It seems that there is a bug on some win 98 machines with the latest RTF printer driver that we use in V5. We license the RTF printer driver from a company called Amyuni, and it seems that when we upgraded to the latest version of their drivers (I think it was build 1255_1005), this problem started happening.

    it does not happen under win 2k, or xp.

    we are in touch with Amyuni on this issue.

    thanks.

    Thanks for your reply. I am using 98. Would that also affect the text attachment?
