    PDFing Microsoft Product Documents (Windows XP)

    I am trying to merge multiple documents with multiple formats (WORD, PowerPoint, EXCEL) to the same PDF document. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can achieve this?

    Note: I do have Adobe Professional 6 (If that helps)

    In adobe writer there is an option to create a pdf from multiple documents. I think it is on the file menu but dont have adobe prof on this computer so cant check it out.

    I would do it this way. Open each of the source files and do whatever it is that you normally do to create each as a separate PDF(eg If you want Bookmarks then use the Acrobat macros - otherwise simply print to PDF). Now open the first PDF in the series (in Acrobat), rename it and choose Document > Pages > Insert to add each of the other PDFs.

    An alternative would be to open Acrobat and choose File > Create PDF > From Multiple Files. I haven't followed this path before so I can't vouch for its reliability. I suspect that this path automates too many decisions I would expect to make along the way such as print areas in Excel, embedded fonts and bookmark options but it may work well for your purposes.

    TY, I did it the first way, although I will attempt the second way as well.

    I use pdfFactory. It has a buffer that lets you print whatever you like and save at the end. Unfortunately, there is no "clean" trial version; the evaluation download watermarks your documents until you enter a registration code.
