Dear All

How can i export vfp6 report to tiff or jpg format. Also can is it possible to attach the same with email from vfp6 using outlook2000 object.



RE: export report to tiff or jpg image

You'll need a third party product to give you this capability in VFP 6.0, but TIFF output (single and multiple page documents) is native in VFP 9.0.


RE: export report to tiff or jpg image

I use a product called XFRX.  It will send reports to a number of formats including PDF, TIFF, jpg, XLS, DOC and more.  The web site is: www.eqeus.com

I also use XFRX, and found it works really good with VFP Reports and as Rick has said VFP 9 has the Tiff file format covered these days.

Another option is to go online and search Google (or whatever your preferred search engine is) for a Tiff printer driver.  There are some pretty decent ones out there and you maybe able to even find one or two for free that will allow you to print your VFP 6 report as a tiff file directly.  Basically you install the print driver on your machine and then when printing the report to that printer your users will be prompted for a file name and location where it should generate the tiff image at.

Have a look at FAQ184-3894 look for the section on "Send an e-mail with attachment".

A reasonably priced product that I have used for this same task is the Zan Image Printer

It works as a printer driver and I merely have my application set this driver to be my workstation default printer and then print out my FRX with standard   

After printing my application returns the workstation default printer to its original setting.

This approach and product has worked very well for one of my clients.

Good Luck,

Try FRX2Any - www.frx2any.com This tool has several output options, including TIFF and JPEG

RE: export report to tiff or jpg image


I have downloaded frx2any trial, and will check, on what extent it can help me.  But I would like to develop some code rather than use third party dependency tools.

Also It has to be evaluated what will be the cost and effort to swith on vfp9.

Looking forward...
