    I searched in the forum and FAQs but I couldn't found a solution to this question:

    I need to load and show a multiple page PDF file into a subreport.

    I tried with Adobe ActiveX control, and in debug mode I can interact with the OCX and it seems to load file (e.g. if I try AcroPDF.load("filePath") then the AcroPDF.src is "filePath"), but at the end it's not shown in the report (if you look at the report there's no clue that there's a PDF OCX in it!) and if I try to print the document with OCX functions I obtain no error but nothing happens.

    I managed to show a one page document using OLE Object, with CreateEmbedded, but if the document has more than one page only the first one is shown.

    Anyone can help me?

    Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, ActiveReports does not provide the ability to display more than one page of a PDF as the OLE object is the only means we provide to display a PDF in a report.
