This is related to the document management aspect of technical writing:
We have tens of thousands of files in various formats (mostly Word & TIF)
that need to be converted to PDF (don't ask why--it's a long, boring
Does anyone know of an utility/program/process that allows quick conversion
of this many files? Currently, we are dragging & dropping each file into
Acrobat, so I expect us to be done somewhere around June 13, 2007. There's
