Sounds like you want to want do have an external method that iterates
over the results of a ZSQL method and pokes reportlab to do what you want.

When you say "integrated into a pdf file", do you mean you have a pdf
template you want to populate with the data from the relational
database, or just that you want to output the data to a pdf?

Do you have a budget for this or are you looking to do it "for free"?
