Document creation suggestion. RRS feed

  • Question



    I have a console app that generates simple monthly account statement reports to disk. Document title, and a table with 3-4 columns. The utility queries several hundred account numbers, from SQL Server  and foreach one writes an xml file.


    I also did an html version, kinda primitive concatenation but got the output done. Those are not really printable documents though. No page breaks etc. What I need are PDFs. Often they are attached to emails by an SMTP component.


    I tried both Crystal Reports and VS retports (.rdlc). In both cases there are navigational bars, and pagination, and bells and whistles all aimed at viewing on demand one report at a time, and exporting to pdf one at a time.


    All the tutorials are how to drag and drop a ReportViewer. Well I don't need GUI.
    I do need to build the reports in code and export them all to separate PDFs ALL in code.


    Please help.


    Desperately behind on this project.

  • I am now working with non-embedded ReportDocument object and it it seems to do the job.
