Some time back at work I had simular issues whereby I had to generate large scale, single documnet PDF reports from multiple Crystal Reports and Delphi Quick Reports. This was a headache as obviously the 2 werent compatible and custom output ( rendering ) was generated in the Delphi Quick Reports.
To work around this I printed the output to the 'Generic PostScript Printer' and then merged/re-indexed the pages from the .PS ( Text ) files into 1 .PS file. Once this was done it was picked up by Adobe Acrobat Distiller and a PDF file was generated from it. This worked well but has the disadvantage of requiring Acrobat Distiller running somewhere to generate the output
Hope its of some help
