Topic: Howto create .ps files

Hi there,

I'm having troubles in converting a .doc into a .pdf programatically. At the moment I do it in visual basic 6 in the following way: I open an instance of word, load the .doc-file and print it with Acrobat Distiller. This works fine, but I'm not getting feedback when the job is finished (cause the OnJobDone-event is only fired if you create an instance of Acrobat Distiller and use the FileToPDF-function, which needs .ps-files as input). This leads me to the next problem: I don't know how to convert .doc-files into .ps-files!

Please help me!
Thanx in advance,
Robert
