For reasons of security we'd like to convert all MS Office files to PDF automatically w/o the user being aware of this action. We are making a solution on the WinNT/VB6 platform. Our attempts have yielded the following results:

1. The printer window opens up asking for user intervention. (We'd like it to go thru without popping up)

2. It always writes the file to the Desktop. (We'd like it to go to another assigned location)

3. After the creation process the Acrobat Reader opens up displaying the file created. (We'd like the reader to not open after conversion)

The Acrobat app. is being used for securing the documents in the background and we do not want the users to be worried about this effort.

Thanks in advance.
