When you've run a report, you can choose the print button. You'll then see a dialog window 'Print Report' where you can select a printer: 'Select/Setup Printer...'. That will show the 'Print Setup' dialog window where, apart from your installed printer(s), you should also see the windows standard 'Microsoft Print to PDF' option. This solves the 'anyelse' option you asked but doesn't produce a .txt file.

A .txt file isn't usable for the formatting required in a print report, unless it is very plain without graphics etc.

For a simple list you may want to read/reread this thread.

If you use the database query plugin (as suggested there) you can als copy and paste the list into a .txt file using windows Notepad instead of a spreadsheet program. But a spreadsheet program (like the free (!) LibreOffice or OpenOffice or similar) offers you more flexibility on the final edit you want... and then save it as text(*). You can find LibreOffice at www.libreoffice.org.

(*) The 'save as CSV' option is the one: that produces basically a text file with the columns separated by comma's -- or your other preferred separator.

If it is important, say it. Otherwise, let silence speak.
