Consider a 3rd-party tool as a solution (for a list of such tools, see http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html).My Visual CUT software provides this type of report "bursting" functionality:http://www.milletsoftware.com/Visual_CUT.htm - Ido

Hi,

There may not be a direct way to export a report to multiple PDF files in a single shot.

There is a work around but would need manual effort. Do you like to give a try?

Create a group on Customer ID and enable the New Page After option in the group footer section. Now each group on Customer ID will start on a new page. When exporting the report to PDF, using the Page Range option, we can export each group into a different PDF file.

Page range option is available when exporting from Crystal Report Desktop version but not for sure when try the same from Infoview.
