Hi
My name is Lakshmi.
I have created a process using Acrobat IAC which will open fdf and save it as pdf.
This process works on my home machine but not on the webserver.

Public Function SaveAsPdf(ByVal sSavePath As String, Filename, sFDFFilePath As String, PDFName) As Long
Dim AcroExchPDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim AcroApp As Acrobat.CAcroApp
Dim AcroExchAVDoc As Acrobat.CAcroAVDoc
Dim PageCnt As Long
Dim bok
Dim temp As String
On Error GoTo Err_Handler
SaveAsPdf = 1
Set AcroApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.APP")
Set AcroExchAVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
Set AcroExchPDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
AcroExchAVDoc.Open sFDFFilePath, ""
Set AcroExchPDDoc = AcroExchAVDoc.GetPDDoc
PageCnt = AcroExchPDDoc.GetNumPages
AcroExchPDDoc.OpenAVDoc sFDFFilePath
temp = Left(Filename, InStr(Filename, ".fdf"))
sSavePath = sSavePath & temp & "PDF"
bok = AcroExchPDDoc.Save(1, sSavePath)
PDFName = temp
If AcroExchAVDoc.Close(1) = True Then
End If
set AcroApp = Nothing
Set AcroExchPDDoc = Nothing
Set AcroExchAVDoc = Nothing
Exit Function
Err_Handler:
SaveAsPdf = Err.Number
Set AcroApp = Nothing
Set AcroExchPDDoc = Nothing
Set AcroExchAVDoc = Nothing
End Function

when i call this method from ASP, i am getting an error "Activex component cannot create object."
It is failing at Set AcroApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.APP").
The fdf and the Pdf files are on the server.
Is ther any other way to do this?
Can anybody help me how to save the fdf as pdf in a browser.
