Many thanks again.

No, we do not offer any extensions that will convert database information to a pdf

thanks Jason, could you recommend any site/script that would be best suited to produce this?

Does Dreamweaver itself offer this facility?

Many thanks again Jason for your help

Sorry, no. This is not something I have attempted doing, so I do not have any resources to suggest for where you may get information on accomplishing this out side of Google.

Unfortunately it is not as easy as writing a script.
The solutions I have seen involve having to install an application on the host, which in most cases will require you to have a dedicated server. Beyond that there was a significant charge due to the licensing from Adobe.

Hiya Mr H,

Not sure if you're still looking for a gizmo to export your tables or recordsets to PDF (or CSV, XML, Excel ), but you could check out this extension. It is expensive though.
