//make sure the DB connection is ok

$query_1 = "SELECT * FROM book";
$query_2 = "SELECT title,author FROM book";
$query_3 = "SELECT book_id,publisher,reader FROM book";

Class: Sql2PdfReport

This class generates PDF Report from SQL query.

Here's how it works:

  • Executes given query and generates HTML report first
  • Appends query reports to previous report(if any)
  • Creates a temporary HTML file and store that as HTML report
  • Creates PDF report for that HTML report by using remote application

For Remote PDF Application, I have used html2ps and html2pdf (supplied by It is 100% FREE for commercial AND non-commercial use! It renders pages as PDF documents and PostScript files. I have deployed this application to phpResource( group's server for easy and reliable access. My special thanks goes to phpResource group.

And Me: I am a hardcore C/C++ and PHP programmer. I enjoy my times in implementing varities of freelancing works.

Please rate this class if you like and if it comes to your needs. Please feel free to contact me for any suggestion and/or further assistance regarding the technique and its implementation.
