I'm using Cold Fusion to develop apps that users interface with remotely at whatever location and output a report upon demand to their local printer. The report consists of a series of specs in PDF format. Each spec has two parts: Part 1 is a one-page cover sheet of dynamic HTML that i need to convert to a one-page PDF file. Part 2 is a 1-3 page existing PDF that already exists on my server. When a user makes a request, would like call-outs to allow Cold Fusion to loop through all specs and GENERATE the dynamic PDF coversheet and then RETRIEVE and print the existing PDF. This user's request would end up producing many 1-3 page reports queued up to print one after the other. i looked at activePDF but they say that only works with printers on MY network. Is this a very tough thing i'm trying to do?
any help would be greatly appreciated,
