    Hi Guys,

    I have a few word documents that I would like to recreate and or change to PDF format, Which program do I need? I do have already a slightly older version of Adobe Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Word.

    Thanks in advance....

    or you need adobe acrobat which will cost you a lot, or you use jaws pdf creator which i use, or you find yourself a free one.

    Never tried it though, so I can't say if its good or bad. Adobe Acrobat is expensive, like $300, so if it even comes close to working, not a bad product.

    Thanks, J79ZLR and Sboulema

    I did figure it out, I "print" my word doc. using the file->print, then open the print properties, for printer selection, I chose "Adobe Distiller" (I guess it comes part and parcel of Acrobat) and then clicked ok.

    Thanks anyways.

    Jaws Pdf creator is awesome. It's small and fast. Unless you're mdifying a PDF, you really don't need Adobe if all you're doing is converting from .doc to .pdf.
