Topic: Acrobat 6 Pro changing Word Document format, shrinking?

I have a client who is attempting to create PDF's from Word 2003 docs using the "Create PDF" button in Word. The docs come out looking okay, but are slightly different in that the Acrobat version is generally a little shorter (as if page formatting or font has been changed). For example, on the first three pages of one document, the Word version has approx 2 1/4 pages of text, but the Acrobat version has gotten all the text into 2 pages and left the 3rd page blank.

I've check the Conversion Options and tried changing from Standard to High Quality, but that made no difference. Can't see that any of the other options would make much of a difference, but there are quite a few under Advanced.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance -

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
