Coldfusion Query to PDF File - how to?

Hi all,

i have a online shopping cart where customer can sign in and view past orders. what i'd like to do is copy the query code that helps display the past orders and have a link called 'print invoice'.

when the customer clicks 'print invoice' i'd like CF to create a PDF file that the customer can then print off.

can anyone point me in the right direction?

thanks
zac

Generate a html version of the invoice then wrap it in <cfdocument> nad it will make a PDF.  Or use Report builder thats free with ColdFusion: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/coldfusion/articles/subreport.html
