    Is it possible to include other pre-existing PDF pages for a PDF export?
    We are wanting to dynamically generate reports with a cover page and some language with legal/definitions/restrictions.

    Can this be done with reporting?  The idea is that a user will make a few selections in a form and then be given the option to export a report with a few dynamically generated table of results on pages 4 & 5....the rest of the pages are main content pages...of which pages 2 & 3 will be dynamically selected from a collection of 4 different sets of legal/restrictions - depending on the region the report is being generated for.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi dcdigital72,

    The current implementation of Telerik Reporting does not provide such functionality. Anyway, your idea seems reasonable and we have added it in our TODO list and while working on the future versions we will definitely have it in mind.

    I looked around the forums but could not find related information.

    Since this message is dated 2008, can you please confirm if this feature is made available in Telerik Reporting?

    Thanks.

    Hello TJ Gokcen,

    Indeed this is an old thread and our plans have changed since. Currently it is not in our short term plans to provide such functionality in Telerik Reporting.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for the info.

    If anyone is interested in achieving this result (embedding pages from an external pdf file into your report), I ended up converting the pdf pages to image files and embed them into my report.
     
    Just Google "pdf to image" and you will see many 3rd party programs/controls that will accomplish this task for you.

    Hello Eric,

    This feature is not exactly in Telerik Reporting scope and our recommendation would be to use a third party tool for combining the pdf pages into one document.

    On the side note, you can modify the report rendered in PDF prior serving it to the viewer - Modify exported report document prior serving it to the viewer client.
