in reply to Would Perl be a good choice for converting MS Access files to PDF

I know both Perl and Access and by far your easiest solution is to write Reports in Access and use one of the PDF creation products (eg Adobe) that runs as a Windows printer driver.

No programming required.

    Yep, this way would most definatly be easiest. Unless you had a ton of Access reports to convert to PDFs where perhpas Perl could make a big job easier in the longrun. If not though, definately just download Adobe Acrobat PDF Writer and, as written above, run it as a printer which will convert your file right into a PDF. :)
