+ 0 Votes PDF file from Access report dfmahoney 6 years ago I don't have a specific solution for your problem but here are a couple of items to test: 1. try producing the report as a snp file to test that all the formatting is coming through; 2. try producing the pdf manually using (e.g.) pdf Factory (www.fineprint.com) as a test. I produced many Access reports with this and had no difficulty with boxes or borders. This can be automated also and is reported to give very good pdf representations 3. Try larger margins. + 0 Votes free pdf creator Route81 6 years ago I always use PDFcreator. (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/) It simply installs as a printerdriver so all you have to do is make whatever you want in the layout that you want and 'print' it to PDFcreator. You really don't have to do anything special for it. You can even select different dimensions of paper (from letter to A0) if desired. It's possible Adobe itself does the same, but this is free and almost completely transparent.
