Creating a PDF is not immediately available from with Classic ASP, you need to use a component or Activex control to generate a PDF file on the fly.
You can build up the PDF as a HTML file and then convert it with most PDF components or output directly to a PDF.

There are many of these components on the market, choose one that suits you best.

Try abcPDF by Websupergoo.  They have a component for classic ASP.  It comes as a 30 day free trial, but can only be run on a single machine.
