Hello,

I found a way to export a dataset/datagird into Excel using the below code, BUT is there a way to do the same thing but export the data into an organized .PDF file, as long as it's not "Action Reports" or any other component I have to buy?

                'Open the file as a stream to read or write
                Dim objExcel As Object
                Dim objBook As Object
                Dim objSheet As Object
                objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
                objBook = objExcel.Workbooks.Add
                objSheet = objBook.Worksheets(1)

                'Set up the Query Table and tell it where to find the data.
                Dim objQryTable As Object
                objQryTable = objSheet.QueryTables.Add("OLEDB;Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=MyDataSource" & _
                    ";Initial Catalog=MyDatabase" & _
                    ";Trusted Connection=Yes;Integrated Security=SSPI;", objSheet.Range("A1"), strSQL)
                objQryTable.RefreshStyle = 2 ' x1InsertEntire Rows = 2
                objQryTable.Refresh(False)

                'sPath is a string containing the location to save the file to
                objBook.SaveAs(objSaveDialog.FileName)
                'Clear everything so you can display it to the user
                objQryTable = Nothing
                objSheet = Nothing
                objBook = Nothing
                objExcel.Quit()
                objExcel = Nothing

Thanks!

I think you can use CrystalReports with in .Net to create a report and have that exported/saved to PDF format

Yeah crystal reports works, all you do is hit a button, but is there a way to do this w/out Crystal reports?

nishikanth,

I am able to export to Excel, that is how I had it, but how would you export to .PDF format WITHOUT using crystal reports?

Thanks!
