MS Access Report to PDF

P: n/a
M P
Hi!

I am currently working on a project that will migrate MS Access DB and Front
End to web-base solution to reduce MS Access installation. Previously, users
are using MS Access as frontend to produce customized report. I am not sure
if in a web based solution, using ASP, I can display the access report as-is
or by converting to pdf (server side) and display on a webpage. I'm not sure
if there are builtin solution on this or I need to have 3rd party to do so.

Need advise.

regards,
MP

Nothing built-in to display a PDF, but you can pesent in HTML if that
works for you.

ActivePDF is one solution, but after going back and forth with report
formats, we've decided to just use Excel as the report Engine.

I prefer to use Access Report since the report contains headers and footer
that ASP cant handle (or is there something that I don't know). If there is
a technique that I may use, please share your thoughts and will be gladly to
know it.

In the html version, you would need to use CSS to provide the headers,
footers and page breaks:
