Topic: Word 2000 to PDF - no PDF appears

I'm new to Acrobat and have figured out how to create PDFs from Excel with Acrobat professional 6 but for some reason it won't work with Word. With Excel it will prompt for a file name and process the file but when I do the exact same thing with a Word file Acrobat opens the Word file, looks like it's processing, then closes the file but I never get prompted for a file name and no PDF appears.
I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I noticed that the "Convert to PDF" buttons have not been added to the tool bar in Word although they're there in Excel. So in Word I have to go to Acrobat and Select FILE > Create PDF > from file or I have to right click the file to select "Convert to PDF" from the drop down menu. But regardless of which method I use, all is fine in Excel.
Any advice???
Thanks so much.
