  • Hi,

    I've used iTextSharp or AsposePDF to create a PDF from scratch. I don't see why this wouldn't work in Windows Azure.

  • All the times I've done this (none yet in Azure), I've used someone's third party assembly to handle the conversion to PDF. I would assume that for the most part, this same approach should be successful in Windows Azure.

  • There's a fairly new web-based app called DocRaptor that does html to pdf...it also does html to excel. I think there's a free plan that gives you a certain number of docs a month. It seems pretty easy to use - not sure if it fits your purposes. 

    Good luck!
