How to open a DynamicPDF document in vb.net

Hi Experts

I used DynamicPDF to create a report template and would like to use VB.Net to write data to that report in a PDF format. The dynamicPDF report is named "Document1.DPLX". I can already create a blank PDF in my program(see code). All I want to do is write this data directly to the Document1.DPLX template. Can anyone please help me with this?

Thanx in advance
Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Imports ceTe.DynamicPDF
Imports ceTe.DynamicPDF.PageElements
 
        Dim MyDocument As ceTe.DynamicPDF.Document = New ceTe.DynamicPDF.Document()
 
        MyDocument.Creator = "HelloWorld.aspx"
        MyDocument.Author = "Your Name"
        MyDocument.Title = "Hello World"
 
 
        Dim MyPage As ceTe.DynamicPDF.Page = New ceTe.DynamicPDF.Page(PageSize.Letter, PageOrientation.Portrait, 54.0F)
 
        'MyPage.Elements.Add(New LayoutGrid())
 
        Dim Text As String = Label1.Text.ToString()
        Dim Text2 As String = Label2.Text.ToString()
        Dim x, y As Integer
        Dim x2, y2 As Integer
 
        x = Label1.Location.X
        y = Label1.Location.Y
 
        x2 = Label2.Location.X
        y2 = Label2.Location.Y
        'Dim MyLabel As Label = New Label(Text, 0, 0, 504, 100, Font.Helvetica, 18, TextAlign.Center)
        Dim mylab As Label = New Label(Text, x, y, 504, 100)
        Dim mylab2 As Label = New Label(Text2, x2, y2, 504, 100)
 
 
        MyPage.Elements.Add(mylab)
        MyPage.Elements.Add(mylab2)
        MyDocument.Pages.Add(MyPage)
 
        MyDocument.Draw("HelloWorld.pdf")
 
        System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("HelloWorld.pdf")
