    Integrating PDF Generator ES with our applications

      We have several applications that produce and manipulate PDF files in a variety of ways, in order to produce customer correspondence (letters, statements, etc.). We have the used following methods...
      1. VB.Net using Crystal Reports, producing PDFs using the Export to PDF function of Crystal Reports.
      2. VB.Net using Active Reports, producing PDFs using the Export to PDF function of Active Reports.
      3. MS-ACCESS producing PDFs by printing to the Acrobat PDFWriter.
      4. MS-ACCESS producing PDFs by opening a Word document and printing it to the Acrobat PDFWriter.
      5. MS-ACCESS using the PDF Library to split a PDF into pieces in some cases, or combine multiple PDFs into one PDF in other cases.
      These are all batch jobs, running automatically overnight.
      We are considering upgrading to the latest release of Adobe, and improving our process while we are at it. PDF Generator ES looks interesting. But these applications are not web-based, so is it possible to integrate PDFG/ES with our applications? Or is there another solution? Thanks, anyone.
