How to select the PDF distiller when writing a report to PDF
Hint Ref: 021006290010

When using the <ExportReport> xml tag to export a report/document template to a PDF file, the export file type is determined by the 'exportfile' file extension.
To use the first PDF distiller to create your PDF file, just give the exportfile an extension of 'PDF'.
However, to use the second (original) PDF distiller, give the exportfile an extension of 'PDF1'.
Once the 'PDF1' file has been created, remember to use the <RenameFile> tag to change the file extension back to 'PDF'.
