Default Printing to a PDF

Basically, does anyone have code that I could use to "easily" print a report to a pdf then e-mail the report.

I have seen methods posted online but have not been able to implement them properly. I was just wondering if anyone had an easy method.

The easiest thing I can think of, if you're really married to the idea of using the PDF format, is to get your hands on PDFwriter (which will probably require you to purchase Adobe Acrobat). This installs as a printer driver so that you simply have to select it as your printer to have it output to a file. You might be able to find something similar in the public domain but I wouldn't have that info at my fingertips.

An easier solution (sans PDF) would be to output your report as an RTF file which should be just as universal (most word processors will open this without a problem).

I have been using an inexpensive third party application called PDF995. It also installs as a printer driver. The good news is that it sells for $9.95 - hence the name. See www.pdf995.com for further information.
