You buy a copy of Adobe and install it on the system. It appears to *all* apps (VB included) as just another printer. You select the Adobe printer, it generates a .PDF file with *zero* coding effort on your part. This is how it is designed to operate.

You're not going to be able to put an ActiveX control on the web and have random people hit it and have a .PDF appear on their system. This would violate the Adobe licensing and you're not going to find a control that does this unless you write it yourself.
