They use microsoft word so I = need to copy or export things into rtf first or copy things directly into m= icrosoft word. The problem is that many symbols come out strangely when I t= ry to export or even copy them the tables and math notation comes out like = --- > =C2 =C2 {\[Null], "\!\(\*SubscriptBox[\(F\), \(1\)]\)", "\!\(\*Subsc= riptBox[\(d\), \(1\)]\)", "\!\(\*SubscriptBox[\(=EF=81=B4\), \(1\)]\)", "\!= \(\*SubscriptBox[\(F\), \(2\)]\)", > > It seems like there is something not set up the way I want to in the expo= rt or copy functions... Also, when exporting to rtf, the tables come out as= a list of data instead of being in the correct form. Another system used t= o export this stuff out to rtf correctly by default... How do I set up math= ematica to do the same? Think the best way to go is with PDF files - so many other programs can read and import them. So just do a "File/Save As" and specify the PDF format. Another possibility is PostScript. This is no guarantee of course that it will work, but is definitely worth a try. In Word 2008 you can do a Insert/Picutre From/File and then you will have to choose which of the pages in the PDF file to import. I have done this on my Mac OS X system with Word 2008, but I assume that the Windows version of Word has something similar. I hope so anyway -- let us know how things work out, OK? -Bob
