    Convert multiple files (word docs) to multiple pdf

    Community Member
      Hi,

      Is there a script I can use in batch processing to convert about 1500 word documents into pdf? I know it's possible to convert multiple files into one pdf, but this is no good to me. Doing these conversions one by one is going to take forever!

      I've tried selecting a few documents at a time and then selecting "convert to pdf" from the right-click menu, but each one requires that you tell it where to save, and then opens the file when it is done.

      I need to convert Word files on a regular basis for work, and could really use a batch process for this with so many to do!

      I have Acrobat 7 Pro (version 7.1.0) on XP Pro SP 2 at work, and Acrobat 8 Pro (Version 8.1.2) on XP Pro SP 3 at home.

      If there is anyway it's possible to do this via a batch process I would really appreciate knowing how!!

      Apologies if this has been covered in another thread, I searched but couldn't find anything.

      Thanks in advance :)
