I am using CFMX 7 and I know how to create a PDF file but I need to know if it is possible to convert any file to PDF using ColdFusion Tags and Functions?

Thank you

I have done a lot of searching and I haven't been able to find an answer to my question. Ok, Experts, now would be a good time to dig deep and help me out. I know this is a head scratcher and it might not be able to be done, but I need some kind of an answer by the 23rd.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

Jim,

I believe the answer to this is now. Not unless you emply a CFX tag or a COM object to do the conversion.

cfdocument was built purely to take an HTML format doc and push it into PDF or Flashpaper.

check out convertDoc at http://www.softinterface.com/Convert-Doc/Convert-Doc.htm 

This does a very good job of convertig things from one format to another. I would recommend this highly- I have used it on a very large scale to convert word docs to pdf and HTML formats.
