Topic: What Book Do I Buy???

What is a great book to buy if I want to develop a Visual Basic component to generate pdf's from a SQL 7 DB.

I need to take the info from the database, run a loop 15 times and populate the pdf form then open an exact duplicate form, and populate that form and continue the process as many times as needed. A couple of the reports have information in 3 or 4 tables that need to loop.

Example: I have one pdf that is split in half and on both sides it has a copy of a fundraising statement. (So 2 fundraising statements on one pdf) The individual fundraising statement has specific information from the person filing, but then they can enter up to four [amounts and descriptions] on the individual form. If they were to enter 7 [amounts and descriptions] I have to generate another fundraising statement that has the spill over from the first statement. The other problem is I have to stay in the first loop (Left side of the PDF) While the [amounts and descriptions] are looping on that individual fundraising statement.

I need direct intervention from God.
Can any one help or lead me to the BOOK?
