How to produce a pdf file for each group in a report
Posted on 2014-01-16
I'm not sure if this will be possible, but here goes.
I have a fairly simple report that is grouped on a particular field.
There is a new page for each new group with a group header.
Most groups are limited to one page but a few are 2 pages (and could be more)
The report produces about 160 pages.
What I need to do is to create a separate pdf file for each group.
The pdf file should have the name of the grouped by field
So I'm basically looking to press a button and produce around 150 pdf files in a folder somewhere.
This does not have to be particularly elegant - it won't be required very often (if ever again!)
But I would like to be able to avoid doing this manually (yawns).
Any tips for a possible approach would be most welcome.
