I'm creating reports on the Mac (10.6.8 / 10.7.x) that contain a number of graphs, some numbers and a bunch of written text on about 10 pages.
While testing the general procedure and requirements needed I'm using Pages to put each report together manually
The end result will be a PDF file
Before I start spending time on automating the procedure I would like to ask:
Do the above mentioned applications provide the mechaniks to retrieve individual numbers and graphs automatically from the filemaker side?
If so what method should I be looking at to perhaps get this going.
ODBC, XML, PHP, Applescript etc. ?
Or should I be looking at putting this together in Filemaker?
I suspect it would be possible to put together each type of page individually and then concatenate them one by one into the PDF file
