Hello all, I posted a similar question/issue in a previous post, but this is a slightly different situation, but the same unsolved problem. I think I confused people by talking about "PSR to PDF", rather then just saying "Datawindow to PDF" ...

From a discussion thread dated approx. 8 months ago, I see where Native PDF generation can be utilized at execution time by adding NativePDF_Valid=1 (zero is the default) to the [Data Window] section of the pb.ini file. There is also a way to include...
