Code and discussions about producing PDF documents from ABL.

The DocxFactory Project

DocxFactory is a free project for generating .DOCX files.

Features at a glance -

  • Simple to use - To create a .DOCX file, design a template (regular .DOCX file) and merge your data with the template using 4GL/ABL or from the command line. No technical knowledge of the .DOCX file format (Open XML) is required.
  • Powerful - Does a lot more than simply inserting values and creating simple letters, it allows you to truly create real world, sophisticated reports and includes barcodes, pictures, paging features and much more.

New development version!

PDFInclude has a new version!

I've just released some code in the SVN repository.
See the PdfInclude page for more info on the bug fixes and new features.

However I'm not taking over as a full time maintainer, I just do that in my free time, so please don't except too much ;-)

Denkh HTML Reporter

More and more often companies are asking for output in PDF files. They can be more visually sophisticated with fonts, bolding, lines, bar graphs, etc. One of the problems with HTML is the lack of page numbering on listings. This can be accomplished in PDF with headers and footers available too!

Denkh is in the "amduus" repository: http://www.oehive.org/amduus/Denkh/

PDF Include

Generate PDF documents from 4GL/ABL

PDFinclude is an open source Progress utility for dynamically generating reports in Adobe PDF file format without having to use third-party tools or utilities.

PDFInclude is a Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS), distributed under the Eclipse Public License.

PDFinclude is a stand-alone component that defines a toolset of Progress functions and procedures that aid in the output of a PDF file directly from 4GL/ABL, without having to generate a separate text file first (as in text2pdf.p).
