Advise for printing ???

Recommended Posts


Can someone help me in Printing projects. I have made some programs in autoit using Acess MDB and I utilize the MPDF.dll UDF for Printing PDF. But Create print need a lot of time. Is there a working solution like "Crystal report" that I can utilize with autoit ??. either free or not.

Thank you :)

Hi, It has been a very long time since I used Access and also what I have to suggest may not suit what you are trying to achieve.

I am making assumptions here, but if you are creating bespoke reports using AutoIt from the mdb then perhaps you can also create a new mdb on the fly from AI and use the linked to viewer (which is a free standalone/portable app which can also Print).

Or you could instead create a new section in your existing mdb to take the data you have just acquired and using AI inject that info into that section then call the viewer and print it out from there.

The viewer could be called as a hidden window and the printout called invisibly from within AI so your users do not even have to have any interaction with that app.

I hope this has been of some use to you.
