Convert Crystal Report File to either a PCX, DCX or PCL File

We have custom software application written in .NET.  There are several Crystal Reports that are launched from this software.  For certain tasks, I need to convert those Crystal Reports to either a PCX, DCX or PCL file.  Once converted, that file will be dropped into a directory.  Does anyone know of a good way to do this conversion? An automated process is most perfered.  All help is much appreciated.

What is the purpose of converting?

Are the reports single page or multiple page?

We have just installed a FaxPress server.  When the report is generated, from our software, they can view, print or email the report.  We adding the functionality to also fax the report.  The way FaxPress integrates with third party software is through a drop directory.  The file being faxed is placed into the directory along with a control file.  The FaxPress checks the directory every 10 seconds to see if a file is there.  If so, it processes it and sends it according to the control file.  The only problem is the file that is being faxed needs to be in either a PCL, PCX, or DCX format.  That is why I need it to be automatically converted to one of these types.

Also, majority of the faxes are a single page but it may roll over to multiple.  If it is multiple pages, it will still need to remain one file.
