Topic: PDFs on Web Server...

I have an issue which may have been addressed before in this discussion, but I did not find any threads concerning saving PDFs to a Web server. So, please forgive me for repeating this topic.
Here is my challenge: Users (authors) want to be able to use their Web browser and complete a HTML or PDF form and produce a PDF document for their audience. The resulting PDF doc is accessible via a URL. In essence, the authors are actually saving a PDF on the Web server. The authors do have Acrobat 6.0
I tried using the saveAs, but it did not work. I later tried using HTML, ASP and PDF...but ran into a stone wall since Adobe has not release the FDF Forms Toolkit for Acrobat 6. I need to use the fdfAcX DLL when using ASP. So, now I must come up with an alternate solution. One solution may be using a database to populate the PDF doc. But before I use a database, I would like to get other thoughts on how to save a PDF to a Web server. I'm grateful any ideas and thoughts.
