    Default Creating PDF's

    Tomorrow I need to make 16 PDF's out of 16 World docs for a web site I am doing,

    Normally I would use Adobe Acrobat under word 2000 (as you cant make PDF’s under word 2003 as Adobe Acrobat does not support 2003), on our dev computer but XP is throwing a hiss fit (long story) & word 2007 under Vista RC1 is also throwing a hiss fit when I create PDF’s.

    So I need another way to create PDF’s

    Any Ideas? (The Program has to be Free & Good)

    I would use http://createpdf.adobe.com/ but I can only do 5 files per account.

    PS: I am using Adobe Acrobat Version 5

    Err, doesn't openoffice support PDF creation?
    I'm not certain though.

    You might want to save this site for future reference but give one of these a try

    Edit: Openoffice doesn't appear to support PDF creation, just checked it myself

    I think you will find it does, as it is what i have been using to create all my PDFs for a while now

    File -> Export as PDF

    Only problem with OpenOffice is that some word files look funny when opened in O.O
    My shutdown application
