What is the difference between RTF and STR (STATISTICA Report) format?

RTF (Rich Text Format) is a Microsoft standard method of encoding formatted text and graphics for easy transfer between applications. When reports are saved in Rich Text Format (*.rtf), all file formatting is preserved so that it can be read and interpreted by other RTF-compatible applications (e.g., Microsoft Word).

The STATISTICA Report format (.str) adheres to RTF conventions; however, saving reports in the default STATISTICA Report format (*.str) ensures that reports will be opened in STATISTICA, giving you complete access to the report tree. In order to open the report in an RTF-compatible application, select Save As from the File menu to save the report as an RTF file. You can then open it in any RTF-compatible application.
