Topic: Problem creating PDF w/ multiple files
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 135113

I'm using Acrobat 6.0 Professional, with Windows 2000 NT and Word and Excel 2000.

Today I tried to create a single PDF file, combining five files (2 Word docs and 3 Excel files), using the "Create PDF...from multiple files" command. Each time I tried to create the PDF (after selecting all five files) I got an error message saying that the first file in the list (and it didn't matter which file I placed first) did not exist!

Subsequently, I repeated the procedure with Acrobat 6.0 Standard, and it worked perfectly.

Has anyone experience a similar problem with 6.0 Pro? Any suggestions how to fix it? It's the version we have at work, and it's inconvenient to have to take all my files home to create PDFs.

One minor problem I experienced with the final PDF is that the borders of the tables in the Word files looked "spotty" (i.e., some borders or pieces of borders missing) unless the PDF was magnified to 125%, which is way to large for viewing the file comfortably. I have never experienced this problem before. Any suggestions for help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
