Topic: Is PDF what I need

I'm looking for document production method/format/software to be used with our in-house application. We need to be able to produce
standard documents from data held on our application, either from the user desktop on an ad-hoc basis, or as a batch over-night
process. Typical documents would include:
- Straight forward standard letters,
- Policy schedules. These could be documents in a Master/Detail format (ie. A single Client could have multiple policies).
- Invoices and Statements
In addition to filling in sections of the document from data, we would also need to be able to selectively hide or show sections of
the document and/or change graphics/logo depending on the type of policy.
We have not yet decided on whether the solution is to be client based or server based. If we decide on a client based solution we
would want to be able to integrate with applications written with Visual Basic.
I'm attracted to PDF as it gives the flexibility to deliver documents either by print or email. But I'm unsure if products are
available to do what we need to do.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
