Save as PDF??
Its hard to help you when you dont let us know what you need... :)
What do you want on the PDF?
This is what I need - I have a booking for a client this booking has line items coming from two tables one table details tours and one table details transfers to airport etc - So for this example these are services I am proposing to the client
What I need is to be able to put togehter a proposal - In this proposal there is fixed text such as headers and footers but the content is a description for each service I am proposing to the client - So in access I am used to mail merges into word and then to pdf
In filemaker I believe we cannot do this but simply create the report and save on pdf - I need a pdf to display clients name - and services I am proposing Services are line items which have descriptions and a picture along with price
Anything you can print from Filemaker, you can also save as a PDF.
It may help you to think of the PDF-making process as simply using a special kind of printer that "prints" to an electronic file instead of to paper.
I am able to do save and create pdf's but as you know pdf's are just a picture of the filemaker layout - and I need more flexibility as I am preparing quotes for the clients - So let me rephrase my question
Is there any way I can export information from FM to Word - In word then I could manipulate the data and convert to pdf.
If you want to get it into word, you can use an XML export along with a XSLT.
The simplest would probably be getting this tool.
Otherwise, you can try and mess with it yourself. Take a look at the RTF examples as well as the Word example.
