Hello

I'm having an attack of the lazies and hoping some of you clever people can help.



I routinely create PDFs from Word docs. These are usually fairly throwaway docs so I do it by printing to the Adobe PDF printer rather than by any of the cleverer ways.



Can I do this at the command line? I've tried using the Print *.* and it tells me it's printing the first doc in the directory, but then does nothing else. Of course, for a PDF I should also have to tell it where to save the PDF to and what to call it.



Happy to admit to being a complete command line amateur, (though I've recently discovered the joy of using it to move and rename files...)



Thanks.
