View Thread: ASP.NET and iTextSharp (free PDF Generator for .NET)
  • User profile image

    Hi All,

    I'm just getting my feet wet with ASP.NET & VB.NET so please bear with me.

    I managed to get my web app to kick out PDFs of various sections of a report using 14 Crystal Reports, each of which has subreports.  I figured I'd be able to embed each section report into one master report to have all 14 sections all bundled into one PDF.  Alas, the subreports in each section don't appear in my final CR report.  Hunting around seems to indicate that CR XI Rel 2 and previous can't handle nested subreports.

    The only other way I can think to do this is to kick out all 14 PDFs and try to concatenate them together, perhaps using iTextSharp.

    Looking at the tutorials referenced previously, I see a command-line example of doing this, but not a way that my wee brain can see to do so in VB.NET on my ASPX page once I've generated the PDFs.

    Any pointers to any examples would be most welcome.
