Does anyone know a web service that will merge a Word document into a PDF?  I am looking to have a DOC file in a .net application merge a few fields, create the PDF file from the merge, and display it on a web page.  
Thanks!

The following link has some good options, although not exactly what you are asking for.

Dont see a web service that will convert Word to PDF. Only PDF to Word.

The reason is probably that Word has a SaveAs feature built in that will convert Word to PDF. I assume you already have the application that will produce the Word Mailmerge the way you want it. You can visit this link to programmatically saveas PDF --> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/607669/how-do-i-convert-word-files-to-pdf-programmatically

Then all you need to do is add the code to display PDF from browser. If you current app is already an ASP.net app you can use this sample. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/736106/asp-net-sending-pdf-to-browser
