Word 95 to PDF

Word 95 to PDF

I am new to the forum so please bear with me. I am looking for a way to convert Word 95 Documents (.doc files) to PDF. What is the best way to do this?

RE: Word 95 to PDF

You will need to have the Adobe Acrobat Distiller program installed on your computer.  You can purchase it at any software store for around $299 or through www.adobe.com. ; Once that is installed, the process is simple.  

The distiller works as a printer and when you send the document to print to the distiller you will have options you will need to set.

Hope this helps.

RE: Word 95 to PDF

You may not need the full-blown Acrobat.  Check out www.pdfzone.com's list of creation/conversion tools, in particular DocuCom PDF Driver 4.5.  If all you need is to create a PDF from your existing Word files or similar applications, a printer driver is the best route.  Instead of printing to a physical printer, you output to a PDF file.  Whenever you "print", you would be prompted for a filename.
