I am writing a Word macro that converts the document to a PDF (more details at the bottom if you want the reasoning behind this and not using the adobe conversion macros).
I seem to be struggling with the PrintToFile setting. If I print to Distiller manually, and set PrintToFile off - it saves fine.
However, when I run my code, it saves -- but the pdf is too large and I can't open it (I think it is a print file) and when I look at the printer dialog box -- PrintToFile is checked again....
fNAME = "C:\test2.pdf"
ActivePrinter = "Acrobat Distiller"
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, OutputFileName:=fNAME, PrintToFile:=False, Collate:=True
Entire Process Description: I am running a mail merge with a SQL backend into a Word document (so it can be easily changed by marketing folks). This is fine. I can create a single word doc for printing the letters -- this is fine. However, I need to save each record's letters to an individual pdf for inclusion in the contact-management-system. I have code that cycles through the mail merge document -- merging a single record at a time -- and then I want to save that small doc as a pdf and keep cycling through...Hope that was clear -- any other ideas are appreciated.
