Former Member

Dear Experts ,

I need to generate multiple PDF on single button click . I am passing Account Code as parameter , for 1 account code we have multiple sub ledger .

I need to group by Account code wise and sub ledger wise,so I am using Group expert formula and I selected new page after 1 visible group .

If I have 10 sub ledger , I have 10 pages of record in single PDF .

Instead of this I need to generate 10 page as separate PDF (like 10 pop up ) , is it possible to generate using sap crystal report and Visual studio 2010

If it is possible I need to send sub ledger wise mail to customer .

You have a couple of options:

1.  There are third-party tools that will do this. is a good place to start looking for these.

2.  Redesign your report so that you have a parameter for each page or a separate report for each page.  Then write code that will walk through and export each of them separately.

At least one of the 3rd-party Crystal Reports desktop schedulers (see list at allows you to do this using single-pass bursting.  That tool offers a full command line API, so you could call it from within your .net code.

Or export a single page to PDF format.

Just set the page range in code and loop through it 10 times.

You can use the SaveDataController to filter each loop also.

Multiple ways to do this...

Simple export setting page range to PDF.
