hi Jeff:

we've been using Brainy Data's PDFDevice for years to print to pdf and email.

Kim said expensive --- for some reason I don't think so when:
a) its really not expensive
b) it always works
c) it a one liner command to set the print device so it works in all reports
d) its cross platform
e) you can configure a lot in it of you want (or little)

oh, and did I say it is reliable -- meaning we don't work about code, operating system loops to read the file and any other coding tricks.

To me cost savings in using Michael's PDFdevice far outweigh the time to build solutions held together with wire and string.
