  • Hi ShohoAnn,

    In Word 2003 & earlier, you need a 3rd-party app. Some, such as CutePDF, work like a printer driver and you 'print' the PDF; others, like Adobe Acrobat Pro, do that and provide additional tools for saving in the PDF format.

  • Hi,

    Many third-party providers listed on the Office Marketplace Web site provide converters that do this. Check the listings for providers that offer PDF-to-Word conversion.
