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..

You can't change a Microsoft Word document to Adobe Acrobate file just by changing the extension, their completly different

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
