Default Create pdf files from VB.net

I'm a student who works on a project where I have to create PDF-files in VB.net/ASP.NET. Can anyone help me learn how to do that?

I have found out how to create PDF-files from a Crystal Report, but then I get the problem how to create or manipulate the report during the prosess.

Crystal Reports isn't so hard. I recomend you use it. Link the the fields of a recordset with the data on the report.

Okay, but how do I create and modify a Crystal Report during runtime? I want to insert text based on information taken out from a database and also insert charts and diagrams using som of the same data.

I presume that you have Adobe PDF Writer.

In that case, it is really simple.

Set the printer to ADOBE and then Use the Printout method of the Document/Workbook etc objects.

The document will be converted to PDF
