    link if you prefer program

    If you prefer to have a program for offline use then look at this link:-

    http://www.aks-labs.com/products/advanced_pdf_manager.htm

    (for some reason link button not working on me and me's too lazy for all the URL thingy!)

    BTW I know this has come up before - that is why I had that link handy. I believe it is shareware with a free trial or maybe ads - not sure but you can check it out and it look slike it does even more than you need.

    It's not exactly a converter.. but Open Office (URL=http://download.openoffice.org/1.1.1/index.html) has the ability to save as a pdf file.

    You could open the .doc file in Open Office and then resave as a pdf..

    there is a program we use in the office called: www.pdf995.com

    the way it works is you select file print. then select the driver named pgd995 and a dialog box comes up to assk where and what name you want to give it. it then saves it as a pdf.
