You also have freeware versions of PDF printers all over the web: google "free pdf printer" ;)

BTW, this comes up fairly often, you can search this TA for more info (ex: http:Q_21653931.html, http:Q_21269133.html, etc.)

Cheers!

You can print the report to a pdf printer driver:
www.pdfill.com                 (my favorite)
http://www.cutepdf.com/   (recommended by several other in this TA)
www.pdf995.com              (free version is nagware)
http://www.primopdf.com/
http://www.pdfpdf.com/pdf4free.html

Or you can use automation to create a pdf in Adobe Acrobat.  
Or you can interface with Ghostscript: www.almosawe.ae/jaffer/pdf-Report.zip
Or you can use this: http://www.lebans.com/reporttopdf.htm

Note that if you need to distribute this, then you'll need to make sure about the distribution rights ... a lot (if not all) of the free PDF writers aren't distributable.

gustav,
Looks very interesting.  Any chance you might translate it and the manual to English for us monolanguage types?

Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
Certainly. Just pick the manual (e) - that's in English.
When you install pick English as language, then the dialogue will be English as well.

The good thing with this driver is that it uses the Apple Postscript printer driver and Ghostscript which guarantees a high quality output.

When I saw the German web site, I just assumed it only came in German.  I'll give it a try.  Thanks!
