How to Save a Document as a PDF on Windows 2007 without Using Print Command

Intorduction to Creating PDF

I did a similar article before on saving documents as a PDF file, however it required the use of the print command.  This article will focus on how to save a document as a PDF on Windows 2007 without using the print command.  It is very easy to do.

I've heard that some companies can save money on an Adobe Acrobat Professional license because of this feature but I can't honestly make that claim one way or other. If you have any comments, I'd love to hear from you.

This will work on Windows 2007 operating system for Excel, Word or Powerpoint.

Step 1

Open any document. The document could be an Excel spreadsheet, a Microsoft Word document or a Powerpoint presentation document.

Step 2

Go to the top of your computer screen and click File which on Windows 2007 is actually that round, logo in the upper left corner of the screen.

Step 3

Then position your cursor over Save As in the drop down box that appears on your monitor. Don't click on it though, just position the cursor so that you see a box of options appear on the side.

Step 4

In the box of options that appears on the side click the "PDF or XPF" option

Step 5

In the Save As Type box (which is just below the File Name Box) be sure that is reads PDF.  PDF is my default and my guess is it will be your's too

Step 6

Name your file in the file box and the click the Publish Button in the lower right.

Conclusion and Thanks!

Thanks for reading my article on converting a document to a PDF without using the print command.
