How do I print multiple (single page) Word documents to 1 PDF document through a VB program?
I've seen some tools that will convert .DOC's to PDF and I know I can print a multi page .DOC to PDF. But neither of those solutions really fit the bill.
I have a tool that we wrote using VB and SQL server that will open a Word Template; fill in some predefined bookmarks; and print the document. This process works fine but now there is a request to take some of these documents and combined them into one PDF file. There could be as little as 1 and as many as 2000+ Word documents to be included into 1 PDF.
In this scenario a program will loop through database records and for each record generate a Word documents. Next I would determine which word documents needed to be printed to paper and which needed to complied into a PDF.
PDFFactory Pro allows multiple jobs to be include into a PDF. Each job in a sense is a print of a Word document. This tool will work for what I need, but is there any other tool like it?
