Topic: Dynamic Report to PDF to Web?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 53000

Background: We are building a web app that requires dynamic reporting of the result set of a query. Runs on NT/2000, IIS, ASP, etc. The report must be precisely formatted, containing logos, boilerplate, and data.

We Envision:
the user entering data into an ASP page;
user clicks button to execute server-side query based on input;
server executes a PRINT using crystal reports to a PDF;
server serves PDF immediately up the end-user's browser.
User saves PDF for storage and/or prints from plug-in in Browser.
Question: I do not see why this could not be done. However, I do not want to re-invent the wheel. Does PlanetPDF or anyone else have a "server" product that handles the basics of this functionality??
