Printing the accounts to a pdf file

Introduction
To print the accounts to a pdf (portable document format) file you need to have a virtual pdf printer installed on your PC. A pdf printer appears in your list of printers but instead of printing to paper it generates a pdf file.

Installing a pdf printer
If you do not have a pdf printer already installed on your PC, you can download one free of charge or at low cost over the internet. You could try:

CutePDF Writer
Cute is free

or;

Fine Print pdfFactory
PdfFactory is better because you can send an email without having to save the file to disk first but it costs approximately US$50 (unless you want 'evaluation version' printed at the bottom of each page)

Making a pdf file
There are two methods for turning a set of accounts into a pdf file once you have a pdf printer installed.

Method 2:

Reading pdf files
To display a pdf file you need to have a copy of Adobe Reader installed. This can be downloaded free of charge from http://get.adobe.com/reader/
