I am creating a PDF using the following code..
I have a pdf obj and I call methods to print various reports within that pdf..
e.g. AddMainCover opens a pdf tempate containing the book cover.

Set objPDF = Server.CreateObject("PDFlib_com.PDF")

if not isObject(objPDF) Then
Response.write "Couldn't create PDFlib object!"
End If

ret = objPDF.open_file(strFileName)
if (ret = -1) Then
Response.write "Couldn't open PDF file"
End If

objPDF.set_info "Title", "Change Book"


'AddSupportingDocs oConn, objPDF, PageNumber, MeetingID

CloseDBConn oConn

Set objPDF = nothing

My question is..I wish to add attachments to this file i.e.
AddSupportingDocs...The attachments are stored as BLOBS in teh DB..How would I add these docs to the overall book..

I read in the attachments as

Sub AddSupportingDocs ()
'Gets all the attachment details for the specified meeting
Set oRs = GetDocumentList (oConn, MeetingID)

If Not oRs.EOF Then
Do While Not oRs.EOF
contenttype = oRs("content_type") ' e.g. application/pdf"
content = oRs("content") ' BLOB in DB so in BINARY format

*How do I create the PDF i.e. how do I output the Binary format?******

PageNumber = PageNumber +1

End If
End Sub
