I need to create a PDF file from MS Access.  

The reason for this is so that I can create a HTML template (with images, text and merge fields), add field data into the HTML file (contact, company name etc), generate a PDF and then attach that file to an email.  I can get it to the point of having a HTML file - but can't see a way of saving that as a PDF.

I can't use an online tool as it needs to be automated in the background, and the Access application will be running on a hosted server, so I don't want any additional third-party products running (if at all possible).

Any ideas?
