Topic: Output to Postscript

We have a program that we've written in Visual Basic 6 that creates PDF documents by printing to the distiller. The PDF Documents all have the same name, which over-writes previous documents. The application run as a scheduled task without user intervention, so it is not possible to prompt the user for a file name everytime a PDF File is generated. We would like to keep it this way. In our program, we have worked around the problem by creating a PDF file, renaming
the file, creating another file, renaming the file, etc. We know we can resolve this issue of having to rename files by outputting to a postscript firs, How can we print to a postscript so that we can generate our own file names automatically? Thank you for your time.
