Hi Saifuddin
for outpuing a report to a text file use this:
repo form myreport to c:\myfile.txt ascii


generate only text of the report.
see foxhelp with outputDestination.

see also
SET DEVICE TO SCREEN | TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName
to file filename:Specifies a file to which @ ... SAY sends output.

if i remember well that is a code for this
set device to file c:\asup.txt
@1,0 say "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"
@2,0 say "bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb"
@3,0 say "CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC"
read

run/n "notepad" c:\asup.txt
