.Net - web service sending Binary PDF files, basic question

Hello all,

I need to send via a web service from a provider PDF files in binary format.  This may be a stupid question but do I create these files in binary format somehow and then they are stored in the database table or does the actual PDF file have to live in a file directory on the server etc.  Is there any software I need to use to handle this?  Right now I have an access database that the report exists as a access based report not PDF right now.  So trying to figure out what I am going to need to gear up for to create these files in a loop to a table and or directory.

Thanks for any information so I have my ducks in a row.
