SNP File Format

Microsoft Access database snapshot file

SNP is a file extension for a database snapshot report used by Microsoft Access. SNP stands for SNaPshot report. Snapshot reports are created by Microsoft Access, but can be used my Microsoft's Snapshot Viewer on computers that don't have Access installed.

SNP files are based upon Microsoft's Compound File Binary Format, which is a simple container format used to store multiple files, directories and graphics commands which can be used to recreate the report.

I get my work sent to me every day by email.
The content is generated by a database. To be able to transmit large volumes of data in small packages, and still retain original formatting to each page. MS ACCESS snapshot viewer is the perfect tool for this. The files come as attachments via email. To be able to read these files while you are away from a computer, out on the road, is what so so many people have been yerning, begging, screaming for, for many years now.But alas, every cry has fallen on deaf ears. is there someone who can tweek this, you would be overwhelmed by the response.
