Could you be more specific about how you tried to create the

I have no problem* turning Powerpoint files into PDFs. I
believe you need to have the complete Acrobat v4 software
installed, not just the Acrobat Reader.

When you install Acrobat v4, the installation process adds a
button to the Powerpoint toolbar that creates a PDF.

If you have Acrobat v3 (Distiller), you can print the Powerpoint
document to file (.ps/.prn) and then distill the resulting file
to make a PDF file. If I recall correctly, you need to have a
postscript driver installed. If you do not, there is a virtual
postscript driver on the Acrobat installation cd.


*except that the animations do not come through as animation --
just as they would not come through if printed.
