I an issue that I hope someone can help me with. I have a MS Access database that uses Stephen Lebans ConvertReportToPDF. That works great but there is an issue. This database is used by many users that have different default printers installed. The reason why this is an issue is because ConvertReportToPDF uses the default printers settings when creating a PDF file. So if I create a PDF file i may look fine but when another person with another default printer installed are creating the same report, it may not fit 1 page and then two pages are created.
So i was thinking if it could be possible for my Access databse to add a "fake" default printer that it uses on all computer when creating PDF files?
I know this means that I also need some code to registrer the users default printer for when they are prtinting on paper, so I can switch between the real printer and the fake one.
Can some one help me with this issue?
