pdf / save page as file? advice needed please
I need to produce a transaction history page (similar to an invoice) that once generated will never change. It will initially have values drawn from the database but once produced, the values and the page content is finalised and locked down. My first thought is to have the page written and converted to a pdf and the pdf saved as a file on the host. The customer then has an option to download/print from the web page. I know converting html to pdf is possible but is it the best way of doing this?
Any help is much appreciated

Either do that, or save it as an image. Image files are a little harder to edit (than PDF's).
Thanks for the quick response. Just to be clear, are you saying that the server is able to convert the html to an image/pdf and display the new image on the target page?
If so, what do I need to add to my code, or what do I need to learn, to do this?
Yep. I don't know how to do it, but our developers have done so in one of our applications before.
Thanks KDLA. Does anyone know how to do this?
