I need to "get" a PDF file, rotate it 90 degrees, and then embed that image into the middle of a Cystal report.

As an alternative, I could save the Crystal as a PDF and then merge the two PDFS, but, again, the embedded PDF needs to be in the middle of the Crystal report.

Can either of these be done?  If not, do you have any other thoughts on how we might do this?

You can insert a PDF as an OLE object into a report.

However, the PDF can only be 1 page long (if longer you only see page 1) and  the pdf must be set when you design the report.

You might look at the tools from Ido Millet (Millet SOftware)

I believe one of his tools can do what you want.

This is not solved yet, but if anybody can help I think it would be the guy you recommended.  The OLE object idea works, but doesn't do everything we need.

Thanks for your help
