Converting reports to images to email them

Hi, all,

I would like to email the reports I am producing from my VB app to the clients.  I understand I need to convert them into image format (I would like them to be secure, i.e. the recipient must not be able to change the figures and reprint!)

Your help is eagerly anticipated!  

Regards
Tony

You could capture the client area of a form into a file. Maybe this can help:

You don't mention what you're producing your reports with.  I have an app that produces reports using MS Access and send them out in Access Snapshot format which is not editable.

Thanks for your swift response, guys,

I'm using VB6's Printer.Object to build up the report in the required format and then Printer.Enddoccing it!

I wondered about printing it to disk (as a file) instead, but haven't followed that thought through.

I'll check out that link, Vinny.

Me again,

That link, although interesting, was not what I was looking for, Vinny.

I have found what I needed, thanks.  Using pdf995 to print to a pdf file, and then vbSendMail.dll to send the email.

Thanks for your help

Regards
Tony

Hi Dan,

As you can see from the above, I found the solution myself - could I please apply for a refund?

Thanks
