ProAPOD intended to include a function that would enable its customers to click a single button to create PDF reports. The idea was to use procedures included in Excel 2013 for PDF so the customer would not have to rely upon third-party PDF software.
But after a serious attempt to include the proper code, it was discovered that there are too many unresolved issues in Excel 2013 that makes it almost impossible to maintain compatibility across a wide range of computers. Where on one computer the function performed perfectly, on other computers there were error alerts that prevented some of ProAPOD’s features to work correctly.
After much research, it was learned that problems like this are commonly encountered by others attempting to use Excel’s PDF reference library. And without a clear resolution provided, ProAPOD elected to postpone its plan until there is absolute assurance that the error messages can be prevented.
So for the meantime, ProAPOD customers will continue to use third-party PDF software to print their reports as a PDF. It is not difficult, but ProAPOD had just hoped to make it easier.
