Create PDF File from vb.net web app

I need to create a pdf document from my vb.net web app. I am pulling data from my database and that is where i stop. I saw many options for C# and C++ but none for VB.net that were free. I can not afford to use a third party application that cost money right now. I am over budget

Any help is appreciated

What you need to do is to get the byte array, and then set the response headers to stream the PDF to the  Response.OutputStream or use the Response.BinaryWrite method to stream the PDF document.

I realize, though, that you might be talking about getting text information from the database, and then creating a PDF document on the fly.  I am looking through different C# options, and I was wondering what you came across.  I didn't look for any VB.NET options, but there should be something out there.
