Reporting Services for PDF report?

Hi Gang,

I am working on my first significant ASP.Net project. Users of the site fill out long application forms spanning several web pages and containing a lot of variable-length text. I need to be able to create a printed report of the resulting application including the original questions and their answers, including checkboxes which I would like to show as checked or unchecked. I would really like the result to be a PDF file because that would make it easy to print and download. Before I head off on a tangent learning how to use Reporting Services, is this the right tool for what I am trying to do? Basically, I need to be able to create the application document, save it to disk on the web server, and allow the user to download it. Is this all possible with SSRS? If so, can you point me to some resources that will help me get started? Online tutorials or a really good book would be helpful...

Thanks in advance for your help,
Kevin

Hello Kavin,

 

I think you must try Aspose.Pdf for Reporting Services to export reports as PDF documents. It enables you to create PDFs on the server without using Abode PDF SDK.

 

You can download its evaluation copy and if you find any questions then feel free to ask in Aspose.Pdf support forum.

 

I hope you will find it helpful.

 Kevin,

 I use PDFTechLib from http://www.pdf-technologies.com for all of our PDF generation needs and it appears to do the trick everytime.

The response I get from their support department is great. They always write back with code samples and their download includes a bunch of commercial grade applications which come as open source to help people get off the ground.

We originally tried using iText but we could not get any support for it when we needed it so we switched to these guys.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I recommend  you to use SSRS 2005 or SSRS 2008. You can build something like this. It is NOT ease but possible.

SSRS has many advantages then iTextSharp or other HTML to PDF transformers. I just want to mention the pagination pssibility.

SSRS can do good paginaion for very wide table.
