  • Hello,

    you can use foxypreviewer, it does that (and much more).

    VFP 9 required

    http://www.foxypreviewer.com/

    Basically its enough to do

    - do foxypreviewer.app (once in your main.prg)

    - report form (yourreport) object type 10 to file  (yourfile.pdf)

    Best regards

  • Foxypreviewer is great, but if you only need a quick pdf output solution,

    you can use pdf3 a "vfp9 report listener for pdf output" 

    from Martin Krivka's site http://www.vfp.cz :

    "

            - all-in-one prg file. No dependencies. 


        typical usage: 
            report form myReport object pdf3() to file "filename.pdf" [preview] 

            local opdf 
            m.opdf=pdf3() 
            report form report1 object m.opdf noeject 
            report form report2 object m.opdf noeject 
            report form report3 object m.opdf to file "filename.pdf" [preview] "

    I used pdf3() its working good before I build an EXE, but as soon as I build EXE and run program through this EXE an error started showing.

    what should be the problem ...?
