    Unanswered: It works but I'm sure it can work smarter!!!

    Hi all,

    Any help or pointers very gratefully received.

    In a nutshell, I am self taught with limited techie skills!!!

    I am building and Access db for co profiles with fields fulfilled for co name, contact details, execs, activities, trade names etc.

    I have bodged up an Access db and am now populating it. I want to distil each entry into a PDF file. Can do this at present by exporting to a txt file, importing into Word and creating a Catalog thru' MailMerge then distilling to PDF doc. It works but I'm sure there are smarter ways of doing this!!

    Can anyone help how to create unique PDFs per co entry?

    Thanks,

    David

    By each entry do you mean each record?

    How are you viewing the records?

    You can export tables/queries/reports, well pretty much everything, by right clicking on the actual object and selecting export. Then its just a matter of choosing the format.

    If you are viewing records through a report you can export it as a snapshot. Which, I am sure, you can convert to a pdf file format.


    Edit: On second thought there doesent seem to be a way to convert snp files to pdf... But give it a shot.
