Hi Zubin
We use the free version of Primo PDF (http://www.primopdf.com/) to generate PDF files from Visio.
Basically Primo PDF allows you to generate a simple PDF from any application that can print.
Cheers

Depends on the version of your visio. If you use Visio 2007 you can use the plugin from microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=f2526138-33d1-4253-b298-f13d0dd987b7&displaylang=en)

otherwise an alternative to primo is: pdf creator (http://sector7g.wurzel6.de/pdfcreator/index_en.htm)

With this you can print your visio files to pdf...

Better solution is Acrobat Prof (very expensive :( ) or the microsoft plugin (only for 2007 :( )

best regards
