It is attached to the very first post. It is the file with the .bc extension. Check the script out - it should answer your questions.

Smile hi

Thanks all,

I was able to incorporate the scripts provided to work for our organization..
i.e to convert the ascii file to pdf file and generate the report..
If any body has any issues regarding this you can sedn me private message.. I will be more than happy to help you out.. Well my system configuration is baan Iv c4, Windows 2000 OS and Sql server as the database..

Well i had one query.. Converting the data to pdf file works fine for portrait data.. but when i try to print data of landscape type.. it purges some of the data.. and am not able to view the entire data.. Is there any solution to tackle this.

Any solution will be highly appreciated.

Thumbs up Great find!

I came across this post when I was trying to solve the problem of creating PDF output from Baan. I can highly recommend this software, it is really easy to install and use - there are several other useful freebies on this site as well.

Thanks for putting up this post.

http://www.pdf995.com/download.html

This tool is free and you can create PDF documents just like that!

Steps :

1. Download this pdf995 from the above URL
2. Extract the file from zip and install it.
3. This will install a printer on the local machine with name "PDF995"

How to create PDF documents:
1. Print documents from Baan with option to "Preview"
2. When the document appears in preview, goto
File->Print
3. Select the installed printer "PDF995"
4. Give a file name when it prompts and the file will be created!
5. Good thing is this will take images/logos created for baan documents
6. Annoying part is everytime this printer device is used, their promo page appears in explorer. You can avoid this by getting license key.

Print Baan LN reports in PDF output by selecting a device

Hi,

We have been using Baan ERP LN and the operating system is Unix AIX 5.3 version. We would like to have a device defined in Baan ERP LN as "PDF" and when any reports from Baan is used for printing and we select the device "PDF" we would like the output to be printed to a file in pdf format. Please let us know the procedure to do this. Since we are new to this please explain to us in simple words. Thanks in advance.

Using PDF995

John,

Please see the attachement, this is what we use at my company, we are now registered with PDF 995 so we don't get the banner.

I hope that you find this useful.

Regards
Andy

If you are still not successful, please post specific problem. Also if you are not comfortable installing software and compiling scripts, look to www.nazdaq.co.il for ready to go solutions.

Hi,

I'm new too and I don't really understand what you mean about "create a 3GL script and compile it" and how install the scripts.
I haven't the baan sources,but is it possible to do that ?

Can you give me a step by step tutorial ?

Thank you

See the very first post by ~vamsi it contains the source code that goes into the 3gl script. To create a 3gl script all you have to do is use ttadv2130m000 on my system which is 4c4. Insert a new script name, edit the file - then cut and paste vamsi's code into the script. At that point follow the directions and read thru this thread. There are a couple of links to where you can get the ghostscript code. I won't be much help with it since I have not touched it in years.

Thank you for your answer.
Since I have no autorization on session ttadv2130m000, no chance to extend baan for me...
