When I was running NAV 2009 I used PDFCreator, BioPDF or BullZipPDF printers to create a PDF copy of a report.  In NAV 2013 we have the option to use native SAVEASPDF command that uses built-in methods to create a PDF document on the server.

I used the Job Queue in NAV 2009 to send all my invoices and credit memos via email to my customers.  An updated version for NAV 2013 that uses

[code]
FileName := FileMgt.GetDirectoryName(FileMgt.ServerTempFileName(‘pdf’)) + ‘\’ + STRSUBSTNO(‘%1 %2.pdf’,TABLECAPTION,"No.");
IF EXISTS(FileName) THEN
ERASE(FileName);
SalesInvHeader := "Sales Invoice Header";
SalesInvHeader.SETRECFILTER;
CLEAR(Invoice);
Invoice.SETTABLEVIEW(SalesInvHeader);
Invoice.USEREQUESTPAGE(FALSE);
IF Invoice.SAVEASPDF(FileName) THEN BEGIN[/code]

is attached below.
