We have a report in our system where a user has decided they would like a PDF of all the previous day's reports in one for printing. We are currently struggling to find a way to create a Word layout report with one page per record passed in without encompassing the entire page in a single cell repeater table (as the report layout can grow and requires a static header and footer). Is this possible in a Word report or is there any simple method to combine multiple output reports into one?
You might want to create a batch routine to print reports and save in one file?Do you need in one pdf format?
Ideally we would like one PDF.
which report is it? is it custom ? what data item looks like? I am struggling to understand why you would have an issue with printing records and print as one file. should be pretty standard
We have a custom purchase order report. Our primary data item is using table 38: Purchase Header (with extensions) and we have other linked data items to use for repeaters.
Currently when run, even if we pass in a set of records it will only output the first purchase header record. We have tried passing in this "set" of records from both the action (with settableview on the report before run) and requestfilterfields on the data item. We tried using NewPagePerRecord but it warned us that this is obsolete and we were not sure if this was meant for RDLC?
Adobe allows you to combine various pdf files in one pdf file.See below process pasted from web. This does not require any change in your current printing process, assuming you are printing range of PO's in pdf format. Use below process to copy all files and then paste those in Acrobat DC
Open Acrobat DC to combine files: Open the Tools tab and select "Combine files." Add files: Click "Add Files" and select the files you want to include in your PDF. You can merge PDFs or a mix of PDF documents and other files.
Yes we are aware of this but we are currently looking for an integrated and automated solution.
Not without development effort as far as I know.
