RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

I'm having the same problem. Does anybody know how to solve this one?

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

put an empty file named "__pdf.ini" in directory:

C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\2

and you won't have any more the popup.

If you do some good stuff, please inform me.

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

Hi, I have the same problem with with the "save as pdf file" ever present pop-up window. I am using pdfwriter version 5.0. I tried creating an empty file named "__pdf.ini" in directory: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\2 and I still have the popup. Did it work for you?

I thought that there was a setting somewhere in the registry for that (PDFfileName or FileNameSet...) I will keep on digging.

Try using the PDF distiller instead.  Make sure you've set the properties to not ask for a file location.

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

Hi - can anyone please provide the code in it's entirety to convert a Word Doc to a PDF? Not just for the "Save As" problem, but the whole Function.

Thank you,

I'm trying to use VBA to solve this problem.
Still in process...

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

You aren't going to do this easily with adobe software. There are however quite a few pdf writers on the market that will work well. I think docucom worked well. You can set it up so it just creates a particular file in a particular folder each time.

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

I have started a project for converting the Word document files to pdf. Can any body help in this regard.

RE: Word to PDF. Removing Pop-up of 'Save PDF file as'

To get the .pdf file format spec you need to go to Wotsit:

http://www.wotsit.org/search.asp

and do a search for pdf. It will point you to a 3 meg download of the filespec.

Good luck in you efforts to re-invent the wheel!


Hint - There are several freebie convertors out there already - Google will find them for you

Good Luck

Try this: oWordApp.Application.Quit wdDoNotSaveChanges

Use this code at the end of your procedure.
