Is it possible to generate pdf file with data in in tabular form.

I have a requirement where I need to generate the pdf having tables which contains rows defined dynamically.

  • Off the top of my head, your best bet may be the "PDF from HTML" Smart Service, found in the Dynamic Document Generator plug-in, since you could probably create an HTML table that would convert reasonably well.  Caveat that I haven't tried this directly, but it would probably be fairly easy to do a proof of concept and check whether the HTML table conversion abilities would be suitable for you.

    Also the PDF Tools plug-in has some other advanced PDF creation smart services like "create PDF", but I don't think that has any inherent ability to create tables, though I could be wrong.  You might want to check out its documentation just in case.
