Programmatically converting a Crystal Report (version 10) to an Adobe Acrobat .pdf version of the same file

I currently have several CE10 reports that are being populated by stored procedures from a SQL 2000 database.
I am currently using the URL Calls/hyperlink method on our .asp pages to launch these Crystal Reports in the CE viewer for our customers.
I would like to offer our customers these same reports in a .pdf format as this is a more widely used standard.
I know they can currently export to .pdf files once they launch the crystal report in the viewer but I would like to do it programmatically and offer them both versions of the report instantaneosly as different hyperlinks.
Is this possible to do programmatically in Visual Basic or VBScript?
I am new to this forum so please bear with me if this issue/question has been explored many times over.

Thanks in advance,

David Salako
