    Would be great if this would be possible! Thumb up for it... It is useful for static pages with a complex layout...

    I think it's been answered before that you have to use a third-party tool for this. But you're right it would be a nice to have feature.

    Hi everyone,

    The feature is not supported in Telerik Reporting as the main goal is data presentation which includes exporting it to various formats. Merging already created PDF files or byte streams can be performed with another software (you can check the forum for other members post about their choice). If you need to unite several reports on export, we can suggest you to use the ReportBook document where you can add different report definitions and export them at once in a single PDF document without additional file merges.

    Let us know if you have nay further questions.

    I agree, this would be a nice feature.  I have a requirement for including documents (pdf, doc, etc.) as part of a report.

    Hey guys

    I know I'm late to the party, but has there been any update on this?  While I did read the reply from Stef, I think this would be an awesome feature to have, and would address a large short-fall that I've found in T-Reporting...

    I basically need an advanced HTML control to render inside a report.  Since T-Reporting couldn't do this (table layouts, etc.), I have created my own PDF using the Rad Editor export to PDF.  I now need to imbed it into my report...

    any ideas?

    Hello Mark,

    Merging already existing files in a report or rendering of HTML documents is not supported. The workarounds I can suggest you are:
    1. Export the HTML as an Image and use a PictureBox item in the report. Please consider the example here.
    2. Export reports programmatically and merge documents via Telerik Document Processing Libraries.
    3. Use Telerik UI for AJAX or Telerik Kendo UI to export HTML in image, PDF formats - ClientExportManager.
