I was wondering as anyone been able to save and view a Informaker 6.0 Report
as a word document without losing the formatting?
I've tried all of the "Save As" options.
Does anyone know of another software tool that I can use in conjuction with
IM6????

This is one of PB/IM's weak areas. You can save as a psr report. Save as
html sometimes works, depending on the complexity of the report. If you
have Adobe Acrobat, you can distill the report to a PDF file.
If you have PB, you can customize IM to call the SaveAsAscii() function,
which saves to a text file. Or use OLE to save to Word (if you are very
brave).

Terry...Can you describe how to save the report as a PDF file? I am using
Infomaker 6.0.0. Also, is there a way to link Infomaker to Lotus Notes?....

I'm not aware of the full process, but essentially you just print the report
to an 'adobe printer', similar as printing to a fax. Then you use the
distiller to convert the print file intoi a PFD file.

Do you want to read a Notes DB? There are ODBC drivers that will allow
this.
