    flex programming language question and books for a newbie?

    h_c

      Hello All,

      I am a complete newbie to Flex. There was a Flex developer in our
      project who left so that work has come to me. My background is mainly
      C,C++ with some HTML, JavaScript.

      I have a couple of questions and would appreciate if someone could
      respond to them.

      I am going through the Adobe Videotrainings at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flex/videotraining/
      to get acquainted with Flex. In addition, I am using books like
      Wiley Adobe Flex 3.0 for Dummies
      getting_started_with_Flex3 available at Adobe Video training link
      APress Foundation ActionScript 3.0 with Flash CS3 and Flex

      Any other books which are recommended?

      The Flex application I am expected to maintain and enhance prints out
      reports in PDF format which we need to be in MS-Word format. I have
      looked at the source for the application and see the below lines in
      one file

        <cfdocument format="pdf" filename="#report_filename_

      format#"
      orientation="landscape"
                          pagetype="legal">

      Is there a way to do it in the program? I understand the format
      attribute can take only "PDF" or "flashpaper" as values.

      Can someone please clarify?

      Thanks a lot.
