My guess is that you are probably loading the file into your word processor correctly. The files that are created by the export option are in a .wmf format. These can not be read into most word processors directly (you can't just opent them like any other document). I know with Microsoft Word you go to the Insert menu and choose the otion for Picture to load the .wmf file that was created with Farm Works.
There was a discussion on exporting reports in the Support area of these discussion groups (see the discussion on 1/9/97 titled "Exporting Files") that may give you some good hints on using the data in a word processor.
I hope this helps! R. Scott Nusbaum CPA Farm Works Software
