Altova StyleVision Server 2020

The example below shows how to use VB Script code to generate an output RTF file using a PXF file and an input XML file. Ensure that StyleVision Server is installed and licensed and that it is available as a COM server object. Registration as a COM server object usually takes place during installation of StyleVision Server. To check if registration was successful, see About the COM Interface.
