We want to buy telerik reporting to use full-featured later, but currently as a TEXT-To-PDF Converter. Can we make use of some libraries in Telerik Reporting to do it. We know about iTextSharp etc. but do not want to use it, only use Telerik Reporting. Is it possible to extract only this part?

Some samples will be helpful.

Hi Deep Ghosh,

According to your explanation, it seems that you do not really need to create a report, you just want to use it because it offers export to several formats. However we're afraid that a reporting product is not a simple PDF generator and it serves a different purpose. I highly recommend that you review our Reporting WhitePaper, which establish what a reporting solution is, how reports differ from documents and why/when you should adopt a reporting solution for your organization in order to get a clearer view about the purpose of a reporting product.
Preparing your text data in convenient way so that it can be used according to a specific inquiry is entirely up to the developer. You can review the supported report datasources in the Connecting Data to a Report help article.
