    PDF printer

    Found this <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> PDF Printer. From the site:

    Introduction
    The BullZip PDF Printer works as a Microsoft Windows printer and allows you to write PDF documents from virtually any Microsoft Windows application.

    This program is FREEWARE which means that it is FREE for personal and commercial use. It does not contain any advertising or popups (Really!).



    Don't use this myself so I can't vouch for it.

    If anyone tries this and can compare it with CutePDF Writer (also a ghostscript-based freeware PDF printer), that would be very helpful. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    A lot of BullZip's other freeware, and its shareware product, also sound very interesting.

    Re: PDF printer

    I have just installed it and tested it and it certainly works OK (on a few simple jopbs) , and does not have any advertising and popups etc.

    I have just created the same pdf using bullzip, Acrobat 5 and PDF995. The bullZip file si 13KB and the other two are each about 90KB.

    My interest is in background creation of pdf files from with Access databases. I need something where you can configure an output destination and file name, that can then be renamed in code if needed. I currently use PDF995 and this works OK but has advertising unless you pay a small fee.

    PPF995 has the advantage of a graphical interface for configuring the automatic saving. BullZip provides a command line tool, or you can edit a settings text file. I do not fancy trying to explain over the phone how to configure this for BullZip.
    Regards
