Is there an OCX or VBX which I can add to my VB program to add the Adobe PDF functionality and where can I obtain this OCX?

Yes there is a PDF.OCX.

It comes with the latest download of Adobe Acrobat (for 95 or NT).  and the default install is C:\ACROBAT3\READER\ACTIVEX

It's not real robust, but it allows you to specify either a file or a URL.

Hope this helps

Not with out the full blown Acrobat.  There might be a development environment with acrobat, but PDF.OCX is just the Acrobat Reader.

I do have the Full Blown Acrobat 3.0

Do you have any knowledge on how to use the PDFWriter via code.  It will Convert Any file type to PDF using a Print Dirver.

I've never used Acrobat, so wouldn't have any idea on how to do this.  You could try posting another question.
