    Generating PDF files automatically from custom reports

    alcastro

      I'm using the chemstation V E.02.00.493, in a GC-MS 6890/5973n.

      I've created custom reports for my methods. At the end of each run, the custom report is printed automatically.

      However, I need to create a PDF file. When "Adobe PDF" is defined as default printer, the custom report is created, but it stops, asking for acceptance in a window, using the custom report file name for the file, stopping the run and pausing the sequence.

       

      I've noticed that the report procedure is managed by the "xlmac2" macro, which prints the report, through "PrintTemp" macro. Is there any possibility of changing/creating a routine in the "xlmac2" macro to assign a specific file name to the PDF file and overpass the need of confirmation?

       

      Thanks in advance!
