I have a MySQL database with a few dats in it. I need to generate a .pdf report with only text & those dates. Is this possible? I've looked online & downloaded FPDF but it is not very good at explaining itself. Can someone lend me a hand in getting started with this project. Should I use FPDF or something else? Remember, this is a customer database with a MySQL backend with dates I need to pul from teh MySQL database to be displayed on the report....I don't need anything fancy, just something that pulls the customer, 3 or 4 dates, then be able to print it off...any suggestions, examples, will be appreciated.

Hi,

I've found TCPDF to best suit my needs. It has the features I've needed (barcodes, support for JavaScript embedding, ...) and it's comparably well documented.

Check out the simple example at http://www.tcpdf.org/examples/example_001.pdf and it's source code at http://www.tcpdf.org/examples/example_001.phps.
