Use reports to display information onto PDF document.

Hi there,

I have been tasked to pull information from a Salesforce report to be displayed onto a PDF. Is this possible?

I have discovered that it is possible to create Visualforce pages that can display in PDF format. Now, I need to pull a report with all the Salesforce ecords onto a PDF - was just wondering if anyone would be able to assist me as to how I should go about it? What would be the best way? 

I have programming knowledge, am okay at Salesforce - just haven't managed to find a direct answer for this case.

Thanks,
Chloe

Thanks,

We do need it immediately.

We are a private college and need to display student information onto a pdf in the form of a transcript.

Is there no way around it at the moment? It is a priority :)
