Topic: Save As Dialog Box with PDF Writer

I am currently working on a VB6 project where I am populating a Word template with data from a SQL Server database.
When the data has been merged into the Word template it needs to be saved as a PDF so that it cannot be edited by users.
I have found a way of disabling the PDFWriter's Save As dialog box by editing the PDF.INI files in the relevant NT system directory.(Courtesy of Jim Osieczonek article on 9/9/99 and the link to Adobe's support page)
My problem is that I need to specify a filename to save the PDF. The Adobe support article states that only one specific file name can be used in the INI file and that unless the PDF file is renamed it will get overwritten. There must be a way to dynamically pass in a file name to PDFWriter without using the Save As dialog box. Someone please help.
Does the Adobe Distiller driver do what I want ?
