Sending a report to pdf?

P: n/a
Hi!

In my access 2000 db I have a form (frmOffer) and a subform
(frmSubOffer).
>From the registration of an offer I print a report. Now I do want to
make a .pdf file of this report, or

even send the report to my diskdrive as a text-file.

Anybody that know how?

Thank you :-)

I've used several over the years.
Expert PDF creator (pay) PDF Creator (free) and Primo PDF (free).

I use now use Primo PDF www.primopdf.com Doesn't have a lot of
features but works consistently on all the machines I administer.

If you use outlook (not outlook express), the you can use code to attach any
file you want, including a pdf file.

To create the pdf file, you can use Stephens free pdf creator here:

http://www.lebans.com/reporttopdf.htm

The advantage of the above pdf creator is that you

a) don't have to install a printer driver
b) don't have to change the output printer, or switch pdf printers
in code
c) don't actually have to install any software, but just place a
..dll in the same
directory as the mdb (or mde) appcation.

When all is considered, the above issues means that Stephen Solution runs
circles around the other two suggestions here.

If you use outlook, then your code can just attach the pdf file created....

Albert.

Thanks for posting. Though I use Primo PDF for daily use and with
Access, I'm glad to see reporttopdf can work with VB. Looks very
promising to incorporate into some apps I've written. Then I don't
have to worry about distributing a PDF app with the MDB.
