Hi all ,

I am looking for VB code taht can convert word to PDF. I have test the
sFileNameWord = "c:\test.doc"
sFileNamePDF = "c:\test.pdf"
Call Acrobat.CreatePDF(sFileNameWord, sFileNamePDF)
but this is not working.
I have also used this but with this the Hyperlink is word file is not comming up in pdf file
Dim intCounter, intFileCounter As Integer
Dim Wor As Object
Dim Dist As ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller 'calls distiller.
Dim Doc As Word.Document
Dim Wrd As Word.Documents
Dim optionsFile As String
Dim w As New Word.Application
Set Wor = CreateObject("Word.Application")
Set Wrd = Wor.Documents
Word.ActivePrinter = "Acrobat Distiller"
lblAction = "Converting files"
'ProgressBar.Max = intFlyerCounter

Set Doc = Wrd.Open("c:\test.doc")
' Wor.Run "Converttopdf"
' Wor.Close
Doc.AutoHyphenation = True
Doc.PrintOut 0, 0, 0, "c:\"
If (pdfDist Is Nothing) Then
Set pdfDist = New PdfDistiller
pdfDist.bSpoolJobs = True
End If

optionsFile = "Print.joboptions"

pdfDist.FileToPDF "c:\", "c:\test.pdf", optionsFile

' txtActions.SelStart = Len(txtActions)


Can any body tell me what is the best way to do this.
