I've done this in the past and it's quite easy.  Just go to this site and download PDFTK (free)

http://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-the-pdf-toolkit/

Now all you have to do is print each of your documents to a temp PDF folder and use the toolkit to combine them into one PDF document.

The PDF toolkit can be used inside VB6 via the ShellExecute API
