Difficult way:

What you need to be able to do is to select "Print Entire Workbook" in the Print options.  However, the Report Generator's Print Report function doesn't seem to include this possibility.  Maybe there is a way to set this with ActiveX (a technology that Microsoft seems to be abandoning) ...

I abandoned ActiveX years ago, after spending weeks with National Instruments trying to get one of their own ActiveX examples to work reliably across several target machines.

 

There are just too may subtle differences in Windows, Office, and ActiveX that can cause a program that runs fine on one PC to crash on another.

RTSLVU (how do you pronounce that, anyway?),

 

     I completely agree with you.  Before NI introduced the Report Object version of the RGT, I struggled with the version that shipped with LabVIEW 7, which was slooooooowwwww.  In desperation, I "learned" enough ActiveX to do simple things (much faster), but was so glad when NI introduced Report Objects and functions that "do most of what you need" without needing ActiveX.

 

     There was a suggestion to print three PDFs using LabVIEW and the RGT, then combine them with some other code.  There's a "switch" (setting?) in the Print setup that allows you to print All Sheets, but the RGT Print routine doesn't seem to have a "hook" to turn that on.  I don't know if (or how to) there is an ActiveX "way", but I agree it will be messy and uncertain.

 

     I wonder -- can one write an Excel Macro to do this?  I think there is a way to define and run a Macro using the RGT.  The question for the Original Poster is --- do you think it is worth the Effort?  If you do manage to figure it out, be sure to document it, as (a) you'll forget three months after you do it how you did it, and (b) someone just looking at your (undocumented) code is going to have a difficult time figuring out what, and why, you are doing what you are doing.
