i have to write a windows service which has to perform the following task;
- this windows service will read a text file 'A' which contains customer's orders
   and create separate pdf files for each customers orders details
- this text file 'A' can have multiple customers orders which are separated by
   special character "<!--" - denotes start of Customer's Records and
   special character "-->"   - denotes end of Customer's record
- the pdf files also need to be formatted with the same structure as it is in the
   text file

can anyone give me a clue how to start and complete this task.

Solution 1

Yes, you start by buying a PDF library to do the PDFs for you. The rest is trivial. If you don't think so, ask specific questions and post code.
