This may be quite a dumb questin, but I'm looking to convert my word document to a pdf file.

Does anyone know a simple cheap way to do this?

Any information on this would be appreciated.

Cheapest way is to send it to someone who has Acrobat and ask them to do it for you.

Otherwise you have to buy Acrobat -- I think you might be able to get educational discounts from a college bookstore, or from some retailers, if you are a student or teacher.

Hint: Use the "Distiller" function, not the "PDF Maker." I'm not sure why, but it's simpler and seems to be more transportable.

I believe OpenOffice or one of the other Open Source equivalents (can't remember which one) will save as PDF.

If you can't find that, e-mail it to me. I'll convert it for you and send it back. I have the Adobe Creative Suite, which includes Acrobat.

I have a Commercial copy of Acrobat 6.0 so I can do the same as well. if you need me to do it you can email me at the following:

There is/was a tool on Adobe's website that allows you to upload a .doc and then e-mails you a PDF.
