Save Report Output to a PDF File

This report takes another report as input, and captures the output of that report. The output is then converted to PDF and saved to a local file. This shows how to use some of the PDF function modules, as well as an easy way to create PDF files.

One thing I am not thrilled about is how the spool number is retrieved. If anyone has any better method, please let me know! Until I actually have a production use for a program like this, I will not try to find a better way.
