Progamming bookmarks into PDF output

Progamming bookmarks into PDF output

Progamming bookmarks into PDF output

(OP)
Does anyone have any examples of how to publish Crystal report groups as bookmarks in PDF output using the RDC/COM interface?

Is that even possible? I could not find any examples of this on the Business Objects site.

We programatically generate the Crystal 11 report to PDF output and would like to display the report groupings as bookmarks.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Progamming bookmarks into PDF output

Consider a 3rd-party tool as a solution (for a list of such tools, see http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html).

My Visual CUT software provides that functionality.  You basically add a hidden formula for each group level and that takes care of adding the bookmarks.  You can also control the color of the bookmarks (for example, make a red bookmark for a low-performing sales-rep and a green bookmark for a high-performing one).

I didn't notice you were on Crystal 11.  Starting with Crystal XI R2, you have an option to generate bookmarks in pdf exports  .
