Hi,
I have an application that displays data in chart format and table format. I would like to put this chart and data into a report. Now, this report needs to be shown to the user so that he can edit it, Later, he can do a print preview and finally print it.
I do not want to make it a pre-requisite that Microsoft word should be installed on the client's machine.
I also need to save the report into a PDF file.

Any ideas and sample code about how this requirement can be met.

If you can print it, you can write a pdf, you just need to get a pdf printer driver. These are available for free if you search around.

To print it from MFC is always an interesting proposition. I would recommend looking at some projects like these:

You can probably find some code that will make your job much easier.
