Question:I've got an ASP.NET web page that is a dynamically generated report. For business reasons, this exact report needs to be produced as a PDF. What's the best way to do this? Setting the selected printer to Adobe PDF is not an option. Learn to programmatically create PDF files from scratch? Is there a way on VeryPDF to render it in some browser HTML file to PDF?
Answer: According to my understanding, you need to convert HTML file to PDF from ASP.NET web page. If I understand your question right, maybe you can have a free trial of software VeryPDF Document Printer SDK, by which you can convert all the printable files like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents and others to PDF or image together with C#, VB .NET, MS Visual Basic, Borland Delphi, VBA (MS Office products such as Access) and C++ via COM, C and C++ via native C.
