PDF Reports - SDK sample

PDF Reports Sample is an Access database with one table and one form. On the form you can set several options for the novaPDF and then press a button to generate a PDF file. A report is made on the table and it is sent to novaPDF. It demonstrates the basic use of the INovaPDFOptions interface. The printing job is made using the object "Application.Printer" Basically the sample creates a new profile called "Access Profile", sets the new profile as active, sets the user options from form controls, opens and prints a report, and restores original printer settings.

Note: To be able to use the samples you must install novaPDF SDK as samples work only with it. Download it here: novaPDF SDK.
