How to e-mail Donor Manager reports

People frequently ask, "How can I e-mail a Donor Manager report?"

The quickest and easiest way is to install a "PDF Writer" program on your computer. This allows any Windows program to "print" to a PDF file, and then you can e-mail that PDF file.

There are many PDF creation programs out there, but one of my favorites is called win2pdf (http://www.win2pdf.com). This program is free for personal and non-profit use, and really works great. The files that it creates are small, and it is very easy to e-mail them.

It installs as a "printer" and you simply select win2pdf as your printer, and away you go!

The free version does have a "nag" screen, and it adds an additional page to each pdf created that simply advertises the program, but you can register and pay if that annoys you.

It's a simple solution, and everyone I have recommended it to really likes it.

There are other PDF creation programs out there, some free, some commercial. Any other recommendations?

Hi John,
I have used a really good free program for creating pdfs. Here are the details and site location for downloading it.

* FREE PDF Converter - not a trial version.
* Print to PDF from virtually any application.
* Create PDF output optmized for print, screen, ebook, or prepress.
* No annoying pop-up ads, no registration requirement - no catch!
* High-quality, easy to use PDF creator for all users.

* NEW! Double byte character support, enhanced support for Microsoft Windows 98, ME, and NT, PDF viewing support for non-Windows environments, and full support for 64-bit machines (download separate installer here).
* Secure PDFs with 40-/128-bit encryption, allowing the highest level of security for your PDF files. Settings include password to open, password to change, disable printing, disable text/graphics copying, disable commenting, disable text editing, disable page addition.
* Add document information (e.g. title, author, subject, keywords) to converted PDF files, resulting in faster and easier searching of PDF documents.

They also have a 64-bit installer as well.

It is called PrimoPDF at: http://www.primopdf.com/

A lot of pdf creators do not support 64-bit OS. Month ago I have discovered Free PDF Converter in the net. It works perfectly on my 64-bit XP.
