I need Monarch report writer to recognise the prn file as it does not recognise pdf.  This is an ongoing problem therefore I need a permanent solution rather than a one off fix.

Thanks

There is no "prn" file type: This extension is used when you print to file. Depending on the printer driver you are using, you can end up with a file that contains PostScript, PCL, ESC/P or any other printer language.

You can create a PRN file out of a PDF file when you select your printer driver, and then print to file, but as I said, what you get in the file depends on the driver.

I don't understand the first sentence in your question: What is Monarch report writer, and why do you think it will work with a PRN file? What file types does it support?
