Subject: Re: [GENBOX] Save Report RTF
Date: Wed, 30 Mar 2005 10:08:11 -0600
What you described is exactly what I did. I tried to "Save As" again
this morning. When I select from the "Save As Type" list to save as
RTF Genbox appends ".grt" to the name of the file not ".rtf". If I
manually correct this to ".rtf" it does not stick and the file is
saved with the .grt extension.
If it works for you then does that mean there is something buggy with
my installed GB program or something wrong elsewhere? I have no
trouble saving files from other programs as RTF files. I am using GB V
3.4 and Windows 2000.
Any help to correct this problem appreciated.
