    1. Run C1FlexReportDeisgner application.
    2. Open the report.
    3. Click File|Export OR Click Preview and from Export group, select PDF/A from the PDF icon's drop-down. Export Report to File dialog box opens. 
    4. Specify the File name. Save as type is by default PDF/A (*.pdf).
    5. Click Save. The Save as PDF dialog box opens.

    6. Fill the dialog box and then click OK. Your exported PDF/A document opens in the PDF reader installed on your computer.

    You have successfully exported your report that is in compliance with the PDF/A standards!
