Solution 1

Have a look at this (The Competitor's) question: "iTextSharp - Convert word doc/docx to pdf"[^]. It looks you may indeed generate a PDF file using the iTextSharp library, however you have to read yourself the Word files (and feed yourself the library). Other opssibilities are suggested in the linked page.

Developers can use iTextShap to:

  • Serve PDF to a browser
  • Generate dynamic documents from XML files or databases
  • Use PDF's many interactive features
  • Add bookmarks, page numbers, watermarks, etc.
  • Split, concatenate, and manipulate PDF pages
  • Automate filling out of PDF forms
  • Add digital signatures to a PDF file

So it can not be used for converting a word document to PDF. However you can use Microsoft Office Assembly or Aspose.Words or PDFCreator to achieve the same. Please have a look at folllowing threads
