Topic: Create PDF form Word with VBA

Hi my Name is Felix and I am working as a Controller. I created a report that consists of several Word-Files. They are all stored in one folder. I want to reuse these World files and mark each version with a specific number. Then I need to convert these Word files to PDFs. I tried to realize it in VBA.

My little Program runs so far. The only part that is not working yet, is the automatic conversion form Word to PDF. I cannot get it done.

Below I posted my code.

Sub Zuweisen()
Dim wrd As New Word.Application
Dim myWord As Word.Document

Dim Projektnummer As String
Dim Projektname As String
Dim Counter As String

Dim Path As String

Counter = 1

Projektnummer = TextBox1.Value
Projektname = TextBox2.Value

wrd.Visible = True
wrd.ActivePrinter = "Acrobat Distiller"

With Application.FileSearch
.LookIn = ThisDocument.Path & "\Dokumentenbeschriftung"
.FileType = msoFileTypeWordDocuments

For Each Datei In .FoundFiles

Documents.Open Datei
Set myWord = ActiveDocument

With Selection

.InsertAfter Projektnummer
End With

With Selection

.InsertAfter Projektname
End With

Application.DisplayAlerts = False


Dim Name As String

Name = myWord.Name

Path = myWord.Path & "\" & myWord.Name

Application.ActivePrinter = "Acrobat Distiller"

'Print it to a PostScript file using Distiller

Application.PrintOut FileName:="", Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, Item:= _
wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, Pages:="", PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _
Collate:=True, Background:=True, PrintToFile:=False, PrintZoomColumn:=0, _
PrintZoomRow:=0, PrintZoomPaperWidth:=0, PrintZoomPaperHeight:=0


Set myWord = Nothing
Application.DisplayAlerts = True

Next Datei
End With

End Sub

Thanx a lot!
