colleague is running Word 2002 (SP3) on a an XP machine. she wishes to convert Word docs to PDFs. (Acrobat Pro 6.0)

Word, however, has no PDF toolbar or menu selections of any kind that indicate PDF (nor does the term 'PDF' appear in Word help - not anywhere). Have also tried to start the process from within Acrobat 6.0 by selecting a file to convert to PDF. Nothing happens. Word opens, as if it's trying to do something (while Acrobat hunts for the source file to convert) but nothing ever happens, it just sits there with both applications open and ostensibly running but with no results. (i've let it sit for as long as an hour for a one page doc and still nothing - so it's not merely a matter of patience.)

i've searched high and low both in Word and Acrobat for information on this and have found nothing.

I can do the above document conversion just fine on my machine (Word 2002 running on Win2k) and my Word application 'does' have a PDF toolbar. It even shows up along the top menu choices just next to Help.

How does one go about getting Word to recognize Acrobat on an XP machine? Or is this an XP compatibility problem?? any ideas???

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
