I have created numerous useful excel workbooks that create various pdf files using vba.

What are the steps I would need to take to enable visitors to my website to create custom pdf files using these macros.

Now I imagine I would need to convert the macros into some language that can mimic some of excel's vba functionality.

However I do not want visitors to have acces to my code.

I want them to enter thier data on some type of webform and then receive a downloadable pdf file.

I believe this has nothing to do with Excel.

You will have to use any of the programming languages supported by websites, i.e. javascript or any of the dot net languages.

There are ready made solutions such as Doculicious.

You may also be interested in iText an open source library that allows you to create and manipulate PDF documents, the disadvantage is that you will have to code your own solution.
