Weld calculation print out

Having recently created a weld calculation i now wish to save it and print it out.

When i do this a message comes up "Adobe reader could not open WELDFILLETSPA.htm because it is either not a supported file or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an e-mail attachement and was,nt correctly decoded.

Any suggestions please.

I assume that a weld caculation can be saved as a report in the same way as a stress analysis report.

Regards 

Good question, most of the report formats are hard coded. Been like this for as long as I can remember, not just with Inventor but with Algor / Simulation Mechanical.

I just print the HTML to my Adobe PDF printer. Not sure why you ended up with a corrupt HTML document. You should be able to save it as well. Possibly try a different directory as you may not have adequate privileges for the directory.

Just a further update regarding the printing of the weld calculation, this problem now seems to be sorted, it was just a question of allocating the correct program which supports HTM files.
Is it possible to print the input dialogue box ie where the input figures such as material properties etc are shown, this would be a useful addition to any report.Can this be done perhaps using paint and pasted into the report?

Rather than HTML files we use .rtf. Then open in Word and add a screenshot of the input dialog. Cumbersome but we have found value in having the input graphic at the start of our reports and this was the only way we found to do it.
