Writing to a PDF file or using PDF in RDLC using VWD 2005 Express

I've looked all over this forum to know how to write to a PDF file without any success. What I want to do is have the user press a button or click a link and a form/application will print out with the fields filled in from the SQL Server Express database. The form/application is a PDF file (some have edit fields some don't). I need a way to fill in this form/application using data from the database already. I've looked at some third party packages without understanding how they work. I've tried to place the PDF file on the rdlc form (or convert it) so it generates like a report without any success. Does anyone know how to do this using any method and/or third party package and I would need to see some code samples to understand how to do this.


Thank you for your help.

hi,

I think one senario is first export your data from database to a crystal report control

and then export the data from crystal report to pdf

here is an example

That's not what I needed. I'm need to write to a currectly existing pdf file (the pdf is a blank application form, for example a leasing form that's usually filled by hand) with data from my SQL server database. I couldn't figure how to convert the pdf to rdlc so I could easily fill the blanks in the application form. I've looked at third party packages but I couldn't figure out how to use them.

I greatly appreciate your reply anyway. YesCool

I found a solution already. I found a third party package from ceTe called DynamicPDF. Used mergedPDF from that package and placed the appropriate text where applied.
