Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional

1 Answer

Programmatically creating Postscript and PDF files

I routinely create hundreds of departmental reports. Each departmental report contains numerous sub-reports, one for each of its sub-departments. I create these reports in MS Access and then use VB to generate postscript files.

I then distill these files using Acrobat Distiller. Once distilled I end up with one PDF for each department. Within the PDF there are bookmarks for each of the sub-departments that role up under it. Each bookmark correctly displays the associated sub-department's report. It has been working perfectly for me for years. However, I recently upgraded from Acrobat Distiller 6.0 to Acrobat Distiller 9.0 Professional.

Now when I distill the files it no longer pulls the sub-department reports into the PDF file. I end up with a PDF file for each department, containing all of the correct book marks, but no reports. Each book mark is simply a blank page. I am not sure how to correct. Can anyone assist me? I do have a post script for each report. So I could distill each report individually, but the whole point is to have one PDF for each department containing all of that department's reports.

    SimoLett:



    Thank you for your suggestion. It would probably work but the problem is I have hundreds of reports, that would take forever. Right now the process is fully automated. I run one macro and it does everything for me. I am assuming that Adobe 9 is simply missing a DLL or I need to change a command within the VB to make it work again. Thanks.

How to print database in vb


To Print a Database you would require to create a Report. There were many ways of creating reports in Visual Basic 6.0. Hereby I am giving you an example of Data Report.
Printing a Data Report
Printing a data report can be accomplished in one of two ways. The user can click the Print button that appears on the data report in Print Preview mode (using the Show method), or you can programmatically enable printing using the PrintReport method. If an error occurs during printing, trap it in the Error event.
Choosing to Display a Print Dialog Box
When printing a report programmatically, you have two choices: to print by displaying the Print dialog box, or by printing without displaying the dialog box.
To display the Print dialog box
  1. Add a CommandButton to a Form.
  2. In the button's Click event, place the following code.
DataReport1.PrintReport True The Print dialog box allows the user to select a printer, print to file, select a range of pages to print, and specify the number of copies to print.
Note Printers must be installed on the computer in order to present a choice of printers.

Printing Without a Dialog Box
In some cases, you may wish to print the report without user intervention. The PrintReport method also gives you the option of selecting a range of pages to print, either all, or a specified range.
To print without displaying the dialog box
  1. Add a CommandButton to a Form.
  2. In the button's Click event, place the following code:
DataReport1.PrintReport False
Or, to specify a range of pages to print, use the code below:
DataReport1.PrintReport False, rptRangeFromTo, 1, 2

How i can see the qxd extension file


this is Quark Express file. So to view this file, you can use it.

You can download a trial version here--http://8.quark.com/evaluation.html


You can create a PDF file from a Quark document using Acrobat. The desktop version of Acrobat comes with Acrobat Distiller which can convert the Quark file to PDF.

According to the Adobe Create PDF Online web site (http://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl), native Quark (qxd) files do not appear to be supported for online conversion. However, the service does support PostScript (.ps) files. If you can save your Quark file as a PostScript file, then you can use the Create PDF Online service.

Hope this helps.

How to creat a report with java? i need Java Enterprises latest tool. how download? how to creat a exe file from java?


If you would like to create a report with java there are a couple of things that you could focus on using. You could either go for Crystal Reports, or even Jasper Reports or any other reporting kit for java. To download the Java Enterprises latest tool.. I need clarification with this one. Do you mean J2EE SDKs? if you do just go to the sun microsystems website and download it from there. To create an exe file... jars are normally the ones you get when you compile java codes. The best thing to do here is to create batch files to run your compiled java applications.

Create a MS Word Report


This from the Word Help files - search for Embed.

You can simply select an area in Excel copy it and paste it into your word document, but embedding allows the data in your Word document to be automatically updated as you change the figures in the Excel Worksheet.

From the Help pages:

You can insert objects (object: A table, chart, graphic, equation, or other form of information. Objects created in one application, for example spreadsheets, and linked or embedded in another application are OLE objects.) into a Microsoft Word document when you want to include information from files created in other Microsoft Office programs or in any program that supports linked objects (linked object: An object that is created in a source file and inserted into a destination file, while maintaining a connection between the two files. The linked object in the destination file can be updated when the source file is updated.) and embedded objects (embedded object: Information (object) contained in a source file and inserted into a destination file. Once embedded, the object becomes part of the destination file. Changes you make to the embedded object are reflected in the destination file.).
default.aspx?assetid=za060473201033 default.aspx?assetid=za060474651033 Embedded object
default.aspx?assetid=za060474661033 Linked object
default.aspx?assetid=za060474671033 Source file
For example, a monthly status report might contain information that is separately maintained in a Microsoft Excel worksheet. If you link (link: Used to insert a copy of information created in one program into a Microsoft Word document while maintaining a connection between the two files. When the information changes in the source file, the changes are reflected in the destination document.) the report to the worksheet, the data in the report can be updated whenever the source file (source file: The file that contains information that was used to create a linked or embedded object. When you update the information in the source file, you can also update the linked object in the destination file.) is updated. If you embed (embed: To insert information created in one program, such as a chart or an equation, into another program. After the object is embedded, the information becomes part of the document. Any changes you make to the object are reflected in the document.) the worksheet in the report, your report, or destination file (destination file: The file that a linked or embedded object is inserted into. The source file contains the information that is used to create the object. When you change information in a destination file, the information is not updated in the source file.), contains a static copy of the data.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033The differences between linked objects and embedded objects
The main differences between linked objects and embedded objects are where the data is stored and how you update the data after you place it in the destination file.
Linked objects When an object is linked, information is updated only if the source file is modified. Linked data is stored in the source file. The destination file stores only the location of the source file, and it displays a representation of the linked data. Use linked objects if file size is a consideration.
Linking is also useful when you want to include information that is maintained independently, such as data collected by a different department, and when you need to keep that information up-to-date in a Word document.
When you link to an Excel object, you can use the text and number formatting from Excel, or you can apply the formats supplied by Word. If you use the Word formats, you can preserve formatting when the data is updated. For example, you can change table layout, font size, and font color without losing those changes once the object in the source file is updated.
Embedded objects When you embed an object, information in the destination file doesn't change if you modify the source file. Embedded objects become part of the destination file and, once inserted, are no longer part of the source file.
Because the information is totally contained in one Word document, embedding is useful when you want to distribute an online version of your document to people who don't have access to independently maintained worksheets.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033Edit and update linked objects
To edit a linked object in your document, use the Links command on the Edit menu.
By default, linked objects update automatically. This means that Word updates the linked information every time you open the destination file or any time the source file changes when the destination file is open.
If you prefer, you can change a linked object's setting so that the linked object is updated only when you choose to manually update it.
To ensure that your document is always up-to-date, you can also update linked objects whenever you print the document.
To prevent updates, you can lock individual linked objects. When you lock a link, Word uses the last information available from the source file.
You can also permanently break the connection between a linked object and its source file.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050001033Edit embedded objects
To edit an embedded object, double-click it, and then make changes to it in the source program (source program: The program used to create a linked object or embedded object. To edit the object, you must have the source program installed on your computer.). If you don't have the source program, you can convert the embedded object to the file format of a program you do have.
