Topic: Adobe Acrobat in the server????

Some of the messages I have read in this forum says that Adobe Acrobat is not licensed for the servers. Does that mean I can't do the following ....
From a web browser when I click on a name field, it will instantiate a VB dll that I wrote which dynamically creates and fills a pdf form on the NT/web server, and then the web browser displays the pdf with info relating to the name. The VB dll basically references the Aform32.api and acrobat.tlb files and also interfaces with a SQL database and inserts data to the pdf form related to the name selected on the web browser. The reason for dynamically creating the fields is that the name could have multiple records in the database and as such the pdf form requires corresponding number of fields so data can be inserted.
The users only require the Acrobat Reader to view the information. I have Acrobat installed on the server.
Can I do this or do I need to get some other kind of licensing from Adobe ?? If I cannot do this, what are my options to display data on the web which may have varying number of records??
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
