Hi all,

I need some help (I suppose we all do)

I need to convert some word doc's to pdf.

I'm trying to use AdobePDFMakerX.Word

Here is my code:

Option Explicit
Dim PDFMaker As AdobePDFMakerX.Word
Dim objWord As Word.Application
Dim DestFile As String
Dim SrcFile As String

Private Sub Form_Load()
SrcFile = Command()

If SrcFile = "" Then
Unload Me
End If

Set PDFMaker = New AdobePDFMakerX.Word
Set objWord = New Word.Application

objWord.Visible = True

DestFile = "C:\test\testpdf.doc"

objWord.Documents.Open (SrcFile)

If PDFMaker.CreatePDF(SrcFile, DestFile) Then
MsgBox "Success"

End If



Set PDFMaker = Nothing
Set objWord = Nothing

Unload Me

End Sub

The problem is that word quits before the document gets converted to pdf.

If I omit the last lines then word remains open even after the pdf file is generated.

I've tried adding a loop to wait for the status of PDFMaker.CreatePDF to become true. The status becomes true as soon as PDFMaker.CreatePDF creates a postscript file (which I don't need). I need the program to wait for the PDF file generation.

Can someone help urgently.....

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
