No simple way in version 7. In version 9 you can create a report and the user can generate a PDF.

There are ways with SQL Server and Crystal Reports, but not within Metastorm itself.

Yep, no way to create PDF's in Metastorm itself without using some sort of third party component. Adobe have an SDK which you can use to fully automate Acrobat PDF reation using JavaScript see http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/js_developer_guide.pdf

There may be some other free tools available too.

How about using Jerome's new Grid to HTML library?  is HTML close enough to PDF?  you could print the HTML page to PDF if you have a PDF print driver.
