We can generate a 'PDF report' dynamically for any number of records
from a text file that you have generated with data (ex. a line every
field and X fields every record or with record labels and the fields
with predetermined names). Combinating this ascii file with a PostScript
Applet (GET0RCRD.PS) personalized we can create dynamically a PDF
through the Acrobat Distiller or another interpreter (Ghostscript,
directly to PS printer, etc.)
