print to Postscript and then convert the Postscript to PDF using ghostscript.
No, my Office 2000 doesn't seem to have this
Go to your Printers control panel, create a New
Printer, use the driver for the Apple LaserWriter
(included with most if not all versions of Windows)
and set it to print to file, rather than to a real
printer. When you print to that "printer", it will
ask you for a filename -- end the filename in ".ps"
(stands for PostScript). These files can then be
opened in GSView (or Acrobat Reader, I think)
or converted to Acrobat's (un)Portable
Document Format using ps2pdf.
However, this method will
require manual opening and printing-to-file of each
and every document, which isn't what you asked for
in your original post and is probably not what you
really want to do, unless you're only doing a few
documents. (If you *are* doing only a handful of
documents, then it's an easy way out, which is
why I explained it.)
