Topic: Generate PDF's Dynamically

I need to generate PDF Document dynamically on a web site. I am using Active Server Pages. The client of the project i am presently working on provides us with PDF documents and shock wave templates. I should be able to generate PDF's on the fly from the PDF document given to me. Is there anything like PDF Templates like Shockwave Flash Templates where in you can use ASP turbine for Flash to dynamically change the variables of the template and generate a Shockwave Flash(swf) file out of it using ASP? My main task is to generate a PDF dynamically with customization(I have a mailer, i need to input the address of the person logging on to the site at a specified place and generate a PDF) with each person logging on to the site. Is it possible? Can you suggest me a possible solution, it would be a great help. Presently, I have Flash Template, which i use to customize and generate SWF Files from the code. And then from there, i use Winbatch, Flash 4, Acrobat Distiller and Winbatch to convert SWF to EPS using Flash 4 and then EPS to PDF using Distiller. But this solution is not at all stable and will not be accepted.
