Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

A great work!!! The best I founded on net.

However I found a little error in PDFCell method:
it doesn't match vbCrLf (two chars) therefore text will printed without carriage return.
Below the correction:

While i <= lText
sCar = Mid(str_Text, i, 1) <---- Return one char only,
If (sCar = vbCrLf) Then <---- therefore here doesn't match the vbCrLf constant (two chars). 'WRONG

change the If line with this one:

If (sCar = vbCrLf) Or (sCar = vbCr) Or (sCar = vbLf) Then 'GOOD
