I have an visual basic 6 app, that send Crystal report's report to file.
Cause my Crystal report version have a bug with PDFs generation, I have to
follow the next way
1) Select the pdf printer (manually or from VB6)
2) Manipulate the pdf printer via visual basic, writing in the respective
Acrobat registry entries, how is specified in Acrobat PDFWriter API Reference
Acrobat 5.0, document dated, June 25, 2001
This is the VB6 code for print Crystal Report's Report to PDF using
Sub Send_RepPDFFile(pRep As Object, pFileName As String)
If UpdateKey(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "Software\Adobe\Acrobat PDFWriter", "PDFFileName", pFileName) Then
'pRep es an Crystal Report object order to manage the report
pRep.PrintOut False, 1, False, 1
By default, with Acrobat 4.05, if the entry PDFFileName don't exists, this
open the window ask the user for the PDF filename. If you add the entry PDFFileName and the value pfilename and the PDF Writer don't ask the file name and generate directly the PDF with this name.
All before with Acrobat 4.05
Recently we change to Acrobat 6, and seem to be the registry entries change,
apply the same technique and don't work
If any know how manipulate the Acrobat's PDF Printer from visual basic 6,
or where i found documentation say me is very important.
