Converting Word docs to PDF

    Here at work, we have 2 copies of our policies and procedures. We have a
    Word format, and a PDF format. The problem is that when a policy is changed
    (there is a commitee meeting every month), the Word doc file is updated, and
    then a different user has to convert it to PDF (We only have 2 licenses for
    Acrobat). I would like to try to develop a solution, where the user updates
    the doc file, and then goes to a page on our intranet, where they check the
    boxes beside of the policy and click Convert, then it would convert the doc
    file to PDF. The policies are in a "public" folder, so the directory
    structure would be the same everytime. Are there are any tutorials or
    examples for converting docs to PDF?

    Thanks,
    Drew

  2. You'd want to use a component for this such as Active PDF.

    Wow! That stuff seems pretty high. Does anyone know of a cheaper solution?

    Thanks,
