Has anyone worked with PDF Lib (using vbScript/ASP)?

I need to create PDF's on the fly.  I've been using
FDF with mixed results and would like to give 
PDFLib a shot.

Here's what I need to do:
My web product tracks training courses in school
districts.  Schools create a training workshop for
teachers, teachers sign up . . . and on the day of
the training, I need to have a class roster printed up
and ready to go (in PDF, hopefully).  When generating
the Roster, I need to pull the training session
details (instructor, topic, date, length of course,
etc) as well as a list of the enrollees (name, SSN,
Grade, Schoolname, etc).  All this info is in a SQL
DB.  I can deal with the DB connections and parsing
data . . I just need help with the PDF side of things.

This form is all text-based, so I can't believe it
will be all that difficult.  Could someone point me in
the right direction.  The smiple task of writing:

                 Using Outlook Email

Instructor:  Joe Bloggs                 Date: 10/1/2000
Location:  High School - Rm 201


______________ Barney Rubble  Math Teacher     Grade 8
______________ Joe Bloggs     Science Teacher  Grade 8

I would use Forms, but I need flexibility . . one
class might have 10 attendees and another might have

Any suggestiosn?
