Not sure I follow you.  Microsoft's pdf add-in and Adobe Acrobat are different products. Both, the add-in and Acrobat will enable you to print or preview a report/worksheet in pdf format.  However, if you want to edit the pdf document afterwards, only acrobat has that capability at the present time.    

The links below deal with using the new pdf add-in to file "save as" pdf format and print it using the printer icon.   By saving your report/worksheet as a PDF or XPS file, you capture report information in an easily distributed form that retains all your formatting characteristics yet does not require others to have Office Access 2007 to print or review your report.
see these links:

I object on the grounds that it was my response #34961751 that suggested the use of the "Save As" to retain the formatting.  sabrams response #34962094 merely says that using the "Save As" solved the problem and thanks me.

I object.  You are misinterpreting seth abrams response. In his response he is confirming that the reason for his problem was that he was not using the "Save As" method and is thanking me for directing him to that method......I quote his response:  "Thank you.  We were sending to to print not using the "save as" thank you thank you thank you".
