> Creating Pdf Files In Wpf

p until now we have been creating PDF files using Leban's approach in Access 2003. Essentially, converting Access reports to PDF, then merging them one-by-one within the loop. Merge function is also used from Leban's example. We are now moving from MA 2003 to MA 2010 and although the merging functionality will stay the same, the conversion to PDF will need to be changed.
So I thought instead of changing the PDF conversion code to meet 2010 version I could create a small application in WPF (just PDF conversion/printing purposes). I should mention that the reason doing this is based not only the changes required, but also to improve the performance of merging PDF files. The current implementation is very slow. The conversion to PDF works fine but the merge function is very slow when thousands of records are used within the loop. And it gets slower as the number in the loop increases.
Has anyone did something similar (to move PDF conversion/merging from Access to WPF) ? And if the performance on merging PDF files got better?
Thank you
