Along similar lines, I print the digest to a PDF using PDF Writer (Acrobat
version 3.0) and save the file by date (e.g., 041897.PDF). Then, I use
Exchange to view, search, print, cut/paste etc. Each day's digest gets
archived on a network drive for browsing by the entire Tech Comm Dept.
We've got six months of digests in PDF format, for online searching.
