I am looking for information how to send a report (purchase order for example) by Email without loosing the layout. The HTML solution is not good enought !! The file sent by Email has to be exactly as the preview or the print from NF. Converting the preview into a BMP file for example…I don’t know…

You could get a “PrintToPDF” utility that allows you to create a PDF file just like you were printing the report to a printer.
