Hi Eveyone,

Currently I am generating a report which gives me an output  in editable format as .txt

I wanted my report output should be non-editable as .PDF format. How to generate this (.PDF) files using Uniface Reports or Forms.

I have my PDF writer installed on my machine. Can you please anyone guide me on this or give me some suggestions ..Thanks in advance...
