Attachment types

Reports you send as e-mail attachments can be in text format or PDF (Portable Document Format) format.

Text format

All reports can be mailed as a text attachment. The text representation of the report generated by the Report Writer will match the report layout as closely as possible. However, complex report layouts may not have an ideal appearance. If you want to use the text attachment for reports you e-mail, we suggest making a modified or custom report that is simplified and designed to be represented with text.

PDF format

If you have the PDFWriter printer driver installed (included with Adobe Acrobat 5 and earlier), or Acrobat Distiller from Acrobat 6 or later, you can also mail the report as a PDF attachment. Information about Adobe Acrobat is available at PDF provides a very accurate representation of the report, and works well for graphics reports.
