Would we re-generate the scheduled "pdf delivery" ?

Hi ,
I have a lot of dashboards and has scheduled it as "pdf delivery" for our audit purpose.
But sometimes , the pdf report is not correct because of data forwarding was broken, or our lookup files is not correct at that time...

So I needed to re-generate those pdf report for our auditor after I fixed the data problem.
( For example : Re-generate the daily access report ( each day ) for the last whole month .......... WoW . )

Is it possible to generate the pdf report by script and change the time range dynamically ?
So I can let my report re-generateing job more automatically and easily ..

Thanks.

Many people do not know this but you can run searches from the CLI on the Search Head which means that you can easily write a script around it. You just do this:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk search "earliest=-10m latest=now index=_*"

When using the CLI, it helps to use the highlight command:
