I would like to create a PDF document (for ex. a bill) with Visual Basic 6.0. I have been reading some posts and looking for information, but I still have questions:

1) What should I do: to create directly the .pdf from Visual Basic, or I'd better create the document to word, access or excel, and then convert it to PDF?

2) I have already installed in my computer Acrobat Distiller, and I can print PDF docs from the "Print Dialog" in the Office app. BUT, if I do this instructions from Visual Basic, how can I:

2.1: To avoid that the "print dialog" appears again.

2.2. To implement in the pdf document security options (not editing, copying, and password...)

3) Finally, if I install my application on a Web Server, should I install any librarys, dlls, etc.??

Please, do you have any suggest??

Thank you very much!!!!
