Crystal doesn't have an export to fax.

Can you set it up as the printer so Crystal can print to it?

Crystal can export to PDF and Word.  Can you use either formats as input?

I need it to print out the crystal report maybe to something like a paper. Gfi faxmaker has a printer that can print it to a fax

Can you install the GFI printer driver on the machine and select it as the printer for Crystal?
