    Hi Guys

    I am very excited about report writer.

    It's easy to convert the output of report writer to PDF.

    You could use a second PDF that has images for logos, a table layout etc.

    Use this command on the attachments:
    pdftk one.pdf background two.pdf output overlaid.pdf

    Do you see my beautiful picture! , you could have this set as the background to all your report writer documents!

    Notice how the background repeats, it's only one page on input but it's the background of two pages on output.

    This will be great for me.

    I have a subversion book from the library, I can't wait to make commits. I really want to help reportio.c get merged sooner rather than later.

      Are we supposed to be able to see overlaid.pdf, Pat? I only see one and two, not the merge.

        I've thought Pat wanted us to do this either on our Brains or do a simple test using pdftk :-)
