I have a Word 2010 document converted to pdf (portrait view).  I want to be able to allow users to use their mouse wheel to scroll one page at a time or when they click the up/down arrow on the scrollbar it goes from one page to the next - not line by line or a few lines...  viewing one page at a time

That depends on the way they set up their PDF reader. In Acrobat Reader you can choose if you want to jump page by page or line by line. I believe the default is three lines per scroll event. Acrobat Reader X for some reason defaults to page scrolling.

but where do you choose this?  I have seen 'single page' somewhere in all my mind-boggling searches but it still did not work - the only way it works is if the pages are landscape.

Try the Page Layout option and click on Single page. If you use the Fit page option, this will allow you scroll page by page. If you do NOT display the complete page in the window, then the document will scroll by lines up to the top of the next page, then the new page will appear.

Once you have the document porperly set up in your PDF Reader, then save it.

Here is an example:Software-Updates---Windows-Vista.pdf
