Does any one know, how to create a tiff file for a multiple page document. I mean how is the data specified. It will have as many IFD as the number of pages, but how and where is the actuall data located?????

TIFF is based on file-offsets, so the data could be located anywhere, as are the IFD's, which are linked-lists in the file. I recommend using the "libtiff" software libraries at www.libtiff.org, in which you can create multipage TIFF simply by using the libtiff API to write each image, separated by calls to TIFFWriteDirectory() to start the next TIFF image in the file.
