AccessReport-To-PDF

P: n/a
I have been given a task to convert each report
we print to PDF before printing the next.
This is for archival purpose in which in the future,
if we need to reprint an invoice we just go to the PDF
instead of recreating the report.

Any advice appreciated

There are a lot of printer drivers and utilities available that converts
an input data stream to PDF. Try e.g. Acrobat PDF-Writer (a printer
driver) if you want to 'print' only to PDF or Acrobat Distiller which
you can set up to convert each file thrown into an input directory
automatically to PDF.

You can either buy Adobe Acrobat/Distiller for many monetary units or
something like fineprint pdfFactory for a few monetary units. This
installs as a printer and you select it as normal.

Here is one great pdf maker/printer driver.

It is absolutely Free,

And free means no watermarks, no nag screens, no annoying Popup
advertisements, no time limits etc.

It is also very fast, and works very well. I highly recommend it.
