For many years I have used Stephen Lebans ReportToPdf that has worked well until now.

I am needing to transfer the system to 64 bit Windows and the library StrStorage.dll fails to load.

It is used in
    Public Declare PtrSafe Function MergePDFDocuments Lib "StrStorage.dll" _
    (ByVal PDFMaster As String, _
    ByVal PDFChild As String _
    ) As Boolean

I am not that familiar with the workings of libraries but I am assuming that MergePDFDocuments in a function within the StrStorage.dll

I have downloaded what I think is a newer version of StrStorage.dll but it fails to load.
hLibStrStorage = LoadLibrary(CurrentDBDir() & "StrStorage.dll")
The file exists and is in the correct place

I am assuming that it is for 32 bit systems.

Has anyone any knowledge of this?

Is there another way of merging pdf documents without buying the full version of Acrobat?

Jim
