I have created a report that i need to be able to export as Word (or TXT that can be opened in Word). When i export the report as Word, it exports as a table in a Word doc, which causes weird spacing and makes editing difficult. The user needs to be able to cut and paste to move data around and add text, etc.

Is there any way to export a report to a Word doc where it just drops in as text in the position that it exists on the report design table?

Does this make sense?

Actually, Word has an "export to text" option that the end user can do real quick. I appears to be working great.
