Example: You have modified the original invoice format, and Save As Invoice-01... after some time you retrieved and modified the report format of Invoice-01 again and Save it. To make the same report format available for another account book, you retrieved the format of Invoice-01 and Save To File (let's say save to D:\Report), logon to another account book, retrieve any report format and use Load From File to copy the format (from D:\Report), then Save As (use any name) onto that account book.
