If you have instaled Acrobat (not just the Reader, but the costly Acrobat package) it adds a "printer" to your desktop.
Then you just open your .doc file (I assume you have Word, but it could be any program) and print it using the Acrobat "printer" that creates a .pdf file on your PC.
There may be other methods as well, but that is the procedure I use.
I have Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pr and I'm trying to convert my resume into a PDF document. I try to convert the file and it says it wants to open the file in the program that created it. Then nothing happens, it doesn't freze it just stops what it was doing.
My resume has some tables and minor text formatting - is this a problem?
