Question on multiple layered searches and exporting

Jeff-2
I have not used internet chat feeds in 30 years so bear with me as I
relearn how.  I found partial answers to my questions all over the web
but; nothing that worked for me using the exported reports in other
programs.

Anyway questions at hand.  I am using GNUCash 2.16.7 for Windoze 10.  I
need to to generate some specialized reports that are not supported.

So my questions are:

1)  Is there anyway I can make each search I do output it's results to a
new tab so I do not have to start all over after getting 5 layers deep
in a search if I screw up?

2) Is there an easier way to get an editable exported document from any
of the reports, including searches?  The only way to print them properly
seems to be convert to HTML then print.  I on occasion need to add them
to Open Office Documents and I have yet to find a way to do this on
short notice.  Export to open office file type would be wonderful great
option in my case.

Not that I'm aware of, sorry.

I don't think there will be a way to export gnucash data directly to open
office format any time soon. Hower you probably don't need that as you can
open the html file directly in open office. Sevarl users have reported doing
this successfully already.

No... usually you would search transactions for quick lookups ("warranty
claim... when did I buy the dishwasher?") rather than for regular analysis
which are better done by specialised transaction reports.

From the report tab, click Export. You'll export to HTML.
From Openoffice (preferably) Calc or Writer, File>Open HTML file.
FWIW Excel has better handling of dollars and numbers.
