Hi all,
i try to create a PDF Process "Server Side" in NAV 2013. I want to merge the invoce with another PDF by using Bullzip.
At first i have converted the code from Rashed (http://mibuso.com/blogs/ara3n/2008/08/01/save-nav-reports-to-pdf/) to .net.

When i start my Codeunit, the BullZip Promt is displayed, however i set "Showsettings" to "never".

I think, BullZip dosen't look to the "Runonce.ini", if it was started from the Service-Tier.
Any idea ?

Thank you for any help.

    Hi,

    There is a default command in NAV 2013, SAVEASPDF and also Send Email.

    Frankly speaking there is no need to use bullzip or any other PDF emailing any more.
    If you do it you are re-inventing the wheel.

    I hope this helps.

    Since you want to merge pdf files, have you considered using the saveaspdf first, then issuing a separate batch command to do the bullzip merge?

    Hi Experts,

    Well, old topic, new question, I'm developing to print Word documents saved in BLOB field (imported through import feature of our product) to PDF and merging of docs after that, which means the Word contents are never be fixed.

    That can not be achieved by SaveAsPDF (not even any workaround by not using any third-party), isn't it? Not even in Nav2016?

    You probably need to make a new post, rather than bumping one from 3 years ago for a different topic.

    You are going to have to call Word as a DotNet variable in order to get the BLOB converted from Word to PDF.

    Well, together with NAV 2016 and may be with former versions, too, comes along a server-sided AddIn called PdfWriter with a method ConvertToPdf. Actually this AddIn uses the third party library Aspose.Words to do the conversion. This AddIn is called in Codeunit 9651 in function ConvertToPdf, e.g. - Interestingly, this AddIn doesn't need Word to be installed in order to work properly...
