Topic: MS Publisher's 'Print Merge' command and PDFs

I've got an MS Publisher 2000 document that's set up as a "mail merge" template for printing 1001 flashcards. The file is a 2-page spread that grabs it's data from an Access database. I'm trying to use the "print merge" command to print all 1001 records (a total of 2002 pages) to a single PDF file. No matter what I do, I'm always prompted to save a series of separate files for every 10 records. So my first 10 records are saves as "10.pdf", my next 10 are saved as "20.pdf" and so on. Each time I'm prompted to save the next file in the sequence. If I set my prefs to not prompt for a file name, then Acrobat still writes them to separate auto-named files, breaking my publication into about 100 different PDF files. This is not what I want. I want to print them all to a single file without interruption, but so far this has proved impossible. Can anyone suggest a solution?
