check this simple macro, it will create a txt file at same path with qvw

Sub ExportToNotepad

Set obj = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("TX01")

Set objpro = obj.GetProperties

Set docpro = ActiveDocument.GetProperties

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set f1 = fso.CreateTextFile(docpro.MyWorkingDirectory & "\TX01.txt", True)

f1.WriteLine(objpro.Layout.Text.v)

f1.Close

End Sub

also find my example attached

I tried using this but it exports the code behind the text box (i.e. field names and calculation) not what is on screen. Is there an alterative?
