    Generating PDF

    Hi.

    I have task to create a data report in my program, which will contain the results of a SQL query.
    But which is important is this report must be saved in .pdf file. I don't know how to generate
    this type of files.
    As long as I know one way is to pass the data to the Acrobat PDFWriter driver.
    Before I start, I want to know is there any other way(An ActiveX component, library, etc.) I can
    try?

    And if there are some examples I can read about it.

    Part of this contains a library (or two) for manipulating PDF files.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
