Anyone on the board know how to write code to get an fdf Acobat file to generate a .pdf file and save it to the server? I am using Win 2003 and ASP.

You don't really 'generate' PDF files when you send an FDF file to it, you are just filling it in based on the FDF info. So, if you are looking to generate PDF files on-the-fly, you really should look into a 3rd party component.

If you are in-fact just wanting to fill in a PDF file, there are some samples on Adobe's website.. i think it was called "FDF Toolkit" which included some source code.

I know there is a free component that Adobe had to do a lot of the work.
