Depends on the version of Office: Office 2007 has this functionality built-in with a certain update.

If you have Adobe Acrobat installed, you will have the ability to make a PDF from the Print menu. Other programs, like CutePDF, also extend that functionality to the print menu, so instead of printing to a printer, you are printing to a PDF.

OpenOffice will do it too.

Hi, Thanks for the suggestions. I have used Adobe acrobat 7 to convert my word document, but now find that when I review my document, the paragraphs are not alighned properly - for example, one page's text merges into the other. Anyone know how I can fix this problem? There does not seem to be a tool or function to adobe to do this!

Load the original file into Office 2007 or OpenOffice and make a PDF from there.
Most likely culprit is Adobe misreading the file slightly since Office is quite good at inserting proprietary garbage into files.
