    Word to PDF??? (Word 97, 2000)

    Is there any software that can convert a worddoc into a acrobat pdf so that it can be published on the web?

    Yes. Adobe Acrobat is the primary software you'd want to look at. It retails at roughly $250. (Not to be confused with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader which pretty much everyone has downloaded from Adobe's site). There are other, cheaper products that do the same thing, and I believe you can even go to Adobe's site and convert a few files at a time for free. It depends on if you want to do this as a one-time thing, or if it will be an ongoing production-type process.

    Check www.docauto.com. They sell a $25 MakePDF product that integrates with Word and does a fine job.

    If you're working on a Mac and you're using OSX, you can easily save ANY file as a .pdf by choosing "File--Print--Preview--Save As" (be sure to first choose "print" then "preview" as opposed to choosing "print preview"). Saving as a .pdf is a built-in feature of OSX and it's a piece of cake.

    (Hear that, Mr. Gates?)

    I find MakePDF works fine with simple documents but it didn't correctly cope with some Word Art in a document I used it on recently.
