Hi, folks,

I'm looking for an automated solution to creating a set of PDF files from MS Word docs.

The specifics:

We do a nightly code build, and we would like to make creating the PDF files part of that process. Currently, I create the docs, and convert them to PDF on an as-needed basis (typically once during each release cycle). For any number of reasons, having this automated from the command line for a build would be ideal. We're a small shop, and cannot invest in expensive solutions.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Many thanks!

Donna Flood
