Topic: Product for Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services

I have an MS Access application that needs to print documents as pdf then merge the multiple documents into a single pdf document without user intervention.
This is to be run on Windows Server 2003 for multiple users running via terminal services.

The sequence would be as follows:
1. Set the file/path for 'printer' to save the pdf doc to .
2. Print the doc.
3. Nothing to show for the user. No dialog, or docs opening, etc.
4. Repeat 1-3 for multiple docs.
5. Merge the docs into a single pdf doc.

This is all to be done programmatically without user intervention once the user clicks a button to initiate the process.

I currently do this on individual machines using Acrobat 5 and PDFWriter, but PDFWriter does not work on Windows Server 2003 and even if it did, there are licensing issues.

Could someone please suggest product/products/licenses that would enable me to do this?

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
