I have not yet desided what tool to use. I try this LLPDFLib tool right now

and I manage to get the data itself to the PDF document. (or just the


But I have problem when I want to print in the header and footer too and on

top of that I find no good way to update the header with the PageNo on the

diffrent pages.

I have studied both Header examples, ReportHelper examples and PDF examples

but none of them issues the whole task. Every example have strong

limitations so that one can not combine them together.

I don't understand this limitation you mention about scaling. Do you mean it

you mean it had then been _possible_?

To clearify my task, I want to:

When I make a printing (with header including pagenumber) I simply want to

save it as a PDF as well. Alternatively it can be saved as RTF if that is


I tried RTF too but the RTF resized spaces and tables so that I can not use

it. It has to be exactly as the original else the pagenumbers will soon

differ between the original and saved RTF.

Is this RolePDF a better choise? Any examples on use of it?

Or maybe should I try to get an RTF to look exactly as the RVPrint?
