How to Programmatically Create PDF Files From Any Type of File
PDF Maker is a free ActiveX Dynamic Link Library file, which allows the manipulation of PDF files. This is one of the most commonly used PDF creation programs for Windows operating systems. PDF Maker has been developed by Corel and is used by Microsoft for creating Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. In fact PDF Maker has so much power that it is often used as the template engine for Microsoft Office applications like Outlook and Calendar. It is also used extensively in web designing applications because templates can easily be made with this software. The only thing you need to do if you want to convert a PDF document into an HTML code is to just open the resulting PDF file using your Word or Excel spreadsheet application and then use an HTML editor to customize the page with any graphics that you want.
There are two ways to convert PDF documents into either. First, one can open the PDF in an existing Word or Excel spreadsheet application and use the "PDF" command from the menu to open the PDF in that application. Second, one can open the PDF in an existing ActiveX web browser. For example, to open a PDF file in Windows explorer, simply right-click on the file in the explorer window, go to properties, and click "Open with ActiveX". Or, if you have signed up for an ActiveX compatible web membership service (such as ZooMorph), then you can simply double-click on the PDF file in the "My Computer" section of the ActiveX control panel and it will automatically start working in that web browser.
A PDF file can contain virtually any kind of document - text, images, tables, graphs, video - the fact is that the PDF file is just like a normal word document. To make this even more powerful, PDF maker DLL is available. This is basically a small program that runs on a computer that has already installed a PDF printer driver. By using the PDF maker DLL, one can programmatically create adobe acrobat files from any type of file - excel worksheets, Word files, simple PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, even audio files - even videos.
