Hello. I am a developer who is needing some information regarding using Adobe PDF files on the web. I have an application that is currently generating MS Word documents on the fly. It takes information from forms a user has filled out and generates a document containing the information. The problem is that MS doesn't recommend (or support for that matter) using Office as a service on a web server. For the most part when we automate Word it works pretty good, but sometimes is really flaky and we end up bringing down the server. So much of a problem that we are now searching for an alternative solution.
My question is, can you automate Acrobat to create PDF's on the fly (and then save them to the server or e-mail them)? If so, what do I need for software (for the server and client)? Any other help (e.g. finding syntax, tips, etc.) is appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help,
