I need to script and output a PDF for download  from an IIS webserver.
Users will query the db from a web form.
The PDF will mainly be text pulled from an oracle database.

Can you recommend a, server based, Adobe CS5 product to do this?
Any tips or suggestions for setting this up would be helpful too.

Thank you

IIS is a web server, what you need instead is a web application that hosted in IIS, and we will use ASP to generate the output (PDF) that we wanted.

Some of the ASP components available to generate PDF are:

ASPPDF

ABCPDF

Creating a PDF with ASP

If you're using ASP.NET, you can use Microsoft Reporting Services to generate PDF files dynamically.


Hope info above gives you some insight.

ryancys, thank you for your tips. Perhaps the MS reports is the way to go.

It's surprising that an Adobe product isn't being used to program.
