Creating report with 2 columns: text and picture

Hello,
I'd like to create the report using LabView functions. This should be the 2-colums report. On the left column should be some lines of the text displayed, on the right column should be the picture inserted (the text actually will describe the picture). I have tried the VIs like "Append Image to Report.VI" and "Append Report Text.VI", but they appends the data just below the previous one (not in colums, but in rows). There is no opportunity to for example append picture on the right side of the text.
And I cannot make the HTML report since I have to print report directly to Adobe Writer which actually will create the PDF file instead of printing it.
So the only way is to print the "Standard Report" with differe
nt (text & picture) columns. Is this possible to achieve this?

TIA,
Yazilim.

Yazilim;

In case the html option is attractive to you, you can create the html file and then "print" it with your browser without opening it. You can ask LabVIEW to do so using "System Exec.vi". Make sure you send it to Adobe Writer.

I'm not an expert at using the report generation VIs, but I remember
that at one point tables were added. Using the lower level VIs or going
straight to the ActiveX property nodes, the table cells can contain
different items and have different bounds. I suspect that you can make
a two cell table, one cell with text and the other with an image, and
that will achieve what you are looking for.

Sorry that I can't be more accurate, but I'm not at a PC at the moment.
