    Converting Access report to pdf (Access 2002, SP3)

    I am trying to convert a report from Access into a pdf file. The data converts perfectly but some of the graphical elements such as borders, lines and boxes appear in the converted file in an inconsistent fashion. Some of them appear and others do not. If I convert the report to a snapshot then everything appears perfectly but the trouble with the snapshot viewer is there is no option to search. Has anyone run into this problem and if so did you find a solution? Or is there an add in product on the market that will create a graphical image of an Access report that can be searched?

    Which application are you using to produce the PDF files?

    (I don't think there is another file format that will do what you want)

    Adobe Acrobat report writer is the software we had installed and if we had been able to get it to work would have cost our school system in excess of $1000. We followed the link where you referred us <post#= [579,155>post [579,155</post#> where this topic had been previously discussed and then downloaded Stephen Lebons Rpt to PDF. It works even better than we expected.
