I need to be able to convert word docs into .pdf files, but I need to be able to save the .pdf encrypted.
There's software on the market such as Expert PDF 6...etc...which works well...at a price.
Does anyone know of any 'Open-Source' freeware that will do the job please?

Don't know about the encryption, but try http://www.pdfdownload.org/
Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.

piaqt, Thanks for your reply.I've had a look. Encryption seems to be missing from the 'free' ones I've looked at, but I'll try another download from the site you gave.......

I've finally bought Expert PDF 6 from 'avanquest' site. It works OK and encrypts any PDF document. It's not very user friendly, but most of us will manage it OK. It wont convert Microsoft Publisher documents. The cost on avanquest site was £39 I emailed them and told them that Amazon were selling it for £29. I got a reply allowing me to buy it for £24. So worth complaining!
Anyone thinking of buying - contact me first !!!!!!!!
