I am running FoxPro with a SQL 2005 background and am trying to print from the database to a file. I have the function in the database builtin but I want to try a third party app. If anyone knows of a good program that will allow me to redirect the printing from a printer to a file let me know.

I have a PDF Creator, but I dont want PDF's. Regular .doc or .txt or something like that.

Thanks in advance.

Thats a solid program, but it wont let you save it as .txt or .doc. It has almost every extension there is other than just plain text documents.

Thanks

With LEADTOOLS ePrint you can print your documents, spreadsheets, brochures, anything that can be printed, to any of over 150 file formats (PDF, DOC, TIFF, JPEG, BMP and more). This can be done with or without printing to a paper printer. It's as easy as printing a file from any of your Windows applications!

it says on their page that it does .doc....maybe not in the trial?

You have to change it from picture files to document files when you save it. Thanks for the help! :blink:
